Throngla Pass in winter with Ram

20th January, 2019

We, a group of three, did the Annapurna Circuit (+Poon Hill) in December 2018/January 2019 with Ram as our guide. We had an amazing experience and I would highly recommend doing the trek in winter instead of during the main season. If you can take the cold, you will be rewarded with clear skies and and only very few other trekkers sharing the path with you.

Having an experienced guide like Ram with us gave us the peace of mind we needed to do the AC off-season. It also made our experience at the lodges a lot easier and more fun. We especially appreciated him being flexible and knowledgable enough to change plans on the spot.

I would highly recommend Ram as a guide for any trek in Nepal! He is a very good company and a fun guy who will make your trip more enjoyable and memorable.

Anapurna Circuit in winter (with Ram)

9th January, 2019

I have been wanting to do the Annapurna Circuit in winter even if it is completely off season. Two friends of mine joined me on this quest and together with Ram, our Guide, we’ve had an amazing experience and saw the Annapurnas probably at the best time of year.

I’ve got to know ram through another friend of mine who highly highly recommended him to me and I didn’t regret this one bit. We’ve planned the trip beforehand (even though we changed some parts spontaneously during the trek) and Ram has helped a lot.

Doing the Annapurna Circuit in winter was the best idea because it was so much more real and authentic. Very few other trekkers have been around at that time, so you really could get a feeling for this vastness of the landscape and those huge mountains. Only downside was the cold. But this you could prepare for and live with.

If you are considering a trek in Nepal - Annapurna Circuit or something different - do consider it doing with Ram. He is a very very good company, totally friendly and funny guy and he will help you have a trip of a lifetime.

Thank you Ram.

Great travel companion

9th January, 2019

I’ve been with Ram on the Annapurna circuit over Christmas time this year.
We were a group of friends, quite outdoorsy but not too sure about the Himalayan winter, so we decided to go with a guide. In the end this turned out as a very value-adding idea of doing the trek. Ram is a really fun guy with a tremendous experience in hiking and took care of all organizational stuff so we could focus on enjoying the trek, the nature and simply having a good time.
Of course, going with a guide makes the whole trek less adventurous, but also more enjoyable in the end.
If you decide taking a guide, Ram is a great companion that made our journey a really fun time with a lot of insights into Nepal we wouldn’t have gotten without him.
Thank you Ram!

My Himalayan Adventures

6th October, 2017

I first met Dev in 2000 when he was my guide on the Annapurna circuit and subsequently for trekking in the Langtang and Helambu region also. Right from the beginning I found him to be an excellent and funny person to enjoy an adventure with and it was a privilege to spend such a memorable time in his company.
In 2004 I returned to Nepal for trekking to Gokyo in the Everest region. Again, I found Dev to be an excellent host and true professional at all times. During both trips, Dev and his family invited me into their home and I will not forget their kindness and hospitality.
I have no hesitation in recommending Dev and trekking in Nepal to the highest possible degree for anyone who wants to experience great times in a magical place and in the best possible company.

Throngla Pass in winter with Ram

20th January, 2019

We, a group of three, did the Annapurna Circuit (+Poon Hill) in December 2018/January 2019 with Ram as our guide. We had an amazing experience and I would highly recommend doing the trek in winter instead of during the main season. If you can take the cold, you will be rewarded with clear skies and and only very few other trekkers sharing the path with you.

Having an experienced guide like Ram with us gave us the peace of mind we needed to do the AC off-season. It also made our experience at the lodges a lot easier and more fun. We especially appreciated him being flexible and knowledgable enough to change plans on the spot.

I would highly recommend Ram as a guide for any trek in Nepal! He is a very good company and a fun guy who will make your trip more enjoyable and memorable.

Anapurna Circuit in winter (with Ram)

9th January, 2019

I have been wanting to do the Annapurna Circuit in winter even if it is completely off season. Two friends of mine joined me on this quest and together with Ram, our Guide, we’ve had an amazing experience and saw the Annapurnas probably at the best time of year.

I’ve got to know ram through another friend of mine who highly highly recommended him to me and I didn’t regret this one bit. We’ve planned the trip beforehand (even though we changed some parts spontaneously during the trek) and Ram has helped a lot.

Doing the Annapurna Circuit in winter was the best idea because it was so much more real and authentic. Very few other trekkers have been around at that time, so you really could get a feeling for this vastness of the landscape and those huge mountains. Only downside was the cold. But this you could prepare for and live with.

If you are considering a trek in Nepal - Annapurna Circuit or something different - do consider it doing with Ram. He is a very very good company, totally friendly and funny guy and he will help you have a trip of a lifetime.

Thank you Ram.

Great travel companion

9th January, 2019

I’ve been with Ram on the Annapurna circuit over Christmas time this year.
We were a group of friends, quite outdoorsy but not too sure about the Himalayan winter, so we decided to go with a guide. In the end this turned out as a very value-adding idea of doing the trek. Ram is a really fun guy with a tremendous experience in hiking and took care of all organizational stuff so we could focus on enjoying the trek, the nature and simply having a good time.
Of course, going with a guide makes the whole trek less adventurous, but also more enjoyable in the end.
If you decide taking a guide, Ram is a great companion that made our journey a really fun time with a lot of insights into Nepal we wouldn’t have gotten without him.
Thank you Ram!

My Himalayan Adventures

6th October, 2017

I first met Dev in 2000 when he was my guide on the Annapurna circuit and subsequently for trekking in the Langtang and Helambu region also. Right from the beginning I found him to be an excellent and funny person to enjoy an adventure with and it was a privilege to spend such a memorable time in his company.
In 2004 I returned to Nepal for trekking to Gokyo in the Everest region. Again, I found Dev to be an excellent host and true professional at all times. During both trips, Dev and his family invited me into their home and I will not forget their kindness and hospitality.
I have no hesitation in recommending Dev and trekking in Nepal to the highest possible degree for anyone who wants to experience great times in a magical place and in the best possible company.
