We had an excellent experience with Dev as a guide for the Langtang Valley 8 days trek.
He was really nice to us and really attentive to our needs. He adapted well to our pace during the day and kept us motivated the whole trip. We had interesting conversations and he was really professional when we had to handle some small uncomfortable situations. We believe that he has a plus compared to other guides.
