Truth be told, we didn’t hire Arjun. We made friends with a guy who had Arjun as his guide.
We decided to hike together for 2 days, and Arjun was not only completely fine with letting us tag along with his client, but also fully embraced our company, was very friendly with us, talked to us about local life, and helped us negotiate some rooms.
He has no seeming collaboration to bring business to any guesthouses, and did not demand any money of us since we tagged along with his client.
My friend was so touched by his company, and his story about improving his trekking experience by doing other treks, that she wants to buy him a tent as a gift, to enable him to explore other treks.
We fully recommend him. Unfortunately, since we didn’t hire him, we don’t know how much he charges. His name is the same on Facebook, and his Nepali phone is +977 984-5173835.
