About Ujjwal

I am a University graduate working as a guide since 2006. I initially started my career as a porter as I had always had passion for travel. Although opportunity knocked my doors many times I had decided to work in the field of tourism so I gave the exam for Travel guide and was approved.

My belief is that wherever you work, if you are passionate about your work you will know the core values of work and will never disappoint your clients. “Customer satisfaction” is what have been working for and I believe have justified till the day.

Ujjwal is very passionate about is job and clearly love what he’s doing. His english is very good and he as a lot of conversation, making it always fun and enjoyable! He is really funny as well.

He took amazing pictures of our trek and was happy to share it with me. Doing the trip with him, I felt I had a chance to see the real Nepal and talk to the local people. Even after the trek, bakc in Kathmandu, he was waiting for me at the bus stop to show me the way back to my hotel, which was very kind if him!

Great guide. English is excellent allowing discussion of all sorts of things. Good sense of humour. Always keen to help.

This was ujjwals first time doing manaslu so his knowledge of this particular area is improving quickly. He would very quickly find out any info we needed to know.

  1. Do you have experience guiding the Manaslu Circuit Trek? I want to do it starting from Kathmandu on November 19th in about 13 days. Hoping to fly out of Kathmandu on Dec. 1st or 2nd.

    • Hi Richard,

      Sorry for late reply! I was busy in the mountains. I dont know if it is too late to reply or not but yes I have experience for Manaslu trek and sure Id keep my time free if you still wanna do it.


  2. Hi – I’m interested in hiring just a guide for a Manaslu trek. I’ll be arriving in KTM on the Sep 26 and would be available to trek for about 13 days. I understand it may be necessary to tent due to earthquake damage in villages, this is OK. Are you interested in coming as a guide?


  3. Hi Richard and Noah,

    Sorry if we are too late to reply your message as I was not notified about it until this morning. I am ujjwal rai and I have done Manaslu circuit trek and Manaslu Tsum valley. After the earthquake we would have to walk new trails and except for 1 or 2 nights we do not need to do camping. I have done Manaslu trek for several times.

  6. Namaste Ujjwal Dai,

    I am looking for a guide for the Manaslu circuit and saw your clients good reviews for you. They seem very happy with your guiding, well done 🙂

    I am arriving in KTM 17th December and hope to be trekking as soon as possible. Would it be possible to get the permits on Friday morning?

    If yes, then I can trek for about 16 days; hope to do the circuit with a couple of rest days and side trips.

    I understand that we need to have two trekkers to get the permit. I think I may have another trekker interested to go.

    Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you 🙂

  7. Namaste Ujjwal Dai,

    Hi Ujjwal,

    My partner and I are arriving in KTM on March 30th, and hope to set out a few days later to trek the Annapurna region for around 20 days, ending in Pokhara. We are looking to hire someone independently for a more flexible trip to get off the AC trail a bit and see a few of the surrounding sights – if you are available please email me back, and if not, we would be open to any recommendations.

    Namaste Ujjwal,

    I am looking for an experienced guide for the Manaslu circuit and Tsum Valley. There are three of us and we will be arriving into Kathmandu on the 16th of October and would like to start trekking as soon as we can arrange the permits. We would like to spend about 18 days trekking the Manaslu circuit and some parts of the Tsum valley. I am just wondering if you are interested and available for this trek? Many Thanks. Tim.

    • hello tim,
      sounds like you want to do what I do. I arrive 18th oct to do the Manaslu circuit & Tsum. Sounds like your time frame (18 days) is similar to my own. Contact me if you wish as I need a trekking partner due to rules etc.

  14. hey, Uzol is on a quest at the moment but we have other guides who are equally experienced. If you are ok with it please let me know. You can call or message on (+9779851127333) or email info@themountaintrails.com

  15. Hello,
    I am Planning to come to Nepal in 3 days and I would of course like to go for a hike. Since it is my first time there I decided to start with something shorter. I like to go to Annapurna-Khopra Danda and possibly to the lake after. I think this can be done in 10 days? I would like to go with a mixture of Camping and tea house. Mostly camp but maybe couple of times in a tea house just for a shower and internet.Lets say I go alone, What is the cost I am looking for? Basically a guid like you or anyone, I guess a porter, Camping equipment and permits.
    Thanks a lot
