Your Guide

My name is Guru Ngima Sherpa, a professional (government registered) trekking guide from the Solukhumbu region of Nepal.

I have been guiding for the last nine years around Nepal. I started my career as a Sherpa, and then after two years of experience as a Sherpa I started working as a guide.

I worked for trekking companies for almost 6 years, and after working with many clients from different countries, now I work as a independent biking and trekking guide. So for the last 2 years, now, I am working on my own.

I specialize in biking tours to Langtang, Annapurna circuit, Lower Everest, Upper and Lower Mustang, and Kathmandu valley. I'd be happy to guide you on any of these routes and look forward to your company!

Overview

  • This “Round Annapurna” trip offers one of the most challenging mountain biking trips of the world going high up till the height of 5416 m through Thorong-La Pass. The mixed culture and the heritage of High Himalayas add lots of spice to the trip.

The Annapurna Circuit has held the title of Nepal’s most famous trekking route for almost as long as people have been seeking adventure in this part of the world and it’s not hard to see why… Circling the spectacular Annapurna Massif of numerous 6,000-8,000m peaks, the trek passes through two geographically & culturally distinct river valleys which are separated by the infamous & challenging 5,416m Thorong La Pass at the edge of the Tibetan Plateau.

Passing from paddy fields to dusty high altitude desert then to pine forest and through subtropical jungle and encountering towering cliffs, waterfalls and pristine mountain villages along the way it’s the variety of terrain and landscape that is what has really made this route stand out as unique for so long.

In recent years the construction of Jeep trails accessing the majority of the circuit has brought many changes to the region but most significantly to us, as mountain bikers, it’s made possible a high altitude biking that cannot be matched anywhere else in the world!
