About Krishna

Dear Travelers,

I, Krishna Gopal Shrestha would like to introduce as your local guide:

I born in solukhumbu (Everest region) and finished my high school from Churikharka (gate way of Everest). I walked 5 hours per day during my high school and I had seen many tourist and trekking guide on the way to School. Since these I had dream to be a good guide.

After my Business study, I took guiding courses in 2003 then and became trekking guide officially. But I involved in tourism from 1998. Since 1998, I have been working regularly on different position (porter, sherpa, assistant cook, guide, sirdar and leader).

During the 15 year experience, I am trying to updating my knowledge by different training and experience. In these period, I took Basic and advance ice climbing course from Nepal and Austria. I am trained on Mountain Environment courses from Montana University (USA)’s professor. Drs. I am trained first aid course as well.

I climbed some 6000m peak likewise; Iceland peak (6160m), Mera peak (6654), Pissang peak (6091m)……… and I have been 8150m high on Everest.

I have been leading people many different trekking routes. I don’t remember that how many times I have been some of route like; Mustang, Annapurna Everest. I may recognize a stone from some of route.

I learned German Language from Goethe institute, Kathmandu. I am using my German language in Austria and Swiss. I am working in Austrian and Swiss mountain since 2006 every summer.

I am happy to share that I am living from Nature and I am trying to give back to the Nature. I am serving as Mountain Environment instructor in Khumbu climbing centre, Phorse for 4 years. It is an ice climbing course in Khumbu run by American volunteering project.

From this experience, I am quite confident that I could give good imprecation on your holiday in Nepal.

This is all about me; I am looking forward to wel- come you in Nepal.

with best regards,
Krishna Gopal Shrestha

Amazing trek with best guide ever

Reviewed on Oct 19, 2022.

After met Dhurba in Kathmandu, we decided to go to ABC trek. We did it in 7 days, amazing moments spend with Dhurba and his brother Bishow during the trek : discovering of nepalese culture, degustation of Raksi, Dal Bhat power, a lot of moment with nepalese and tourist people! Then we Finished the 3 last days in Pokhara with good restaurant, boat activity on the lake, paragliding.
Amazing trip! I really recommand Dhurba who became a friend now 🙂

Not just a guide, but a friend.

This review is for Dhurba Panthi. @im_dhurub

Dhurba was recommended to me as a guide for the Nar Phoo Valley trek by a friend I met at a monastery.
Dhurba turned out to be real down to Earth, and cool. He made a great trekking partner.
And of course, he was also very knowledgeable about the route, which came in handy a few times where the main path
had been washed away in landslides.
I had used a different guide previously for Poon Hill, and in comparison, Dhurba had better English, was more talkative
and fun, more knowledgeable about the locals. Better in every way.

Wonderful trekking with Milan

Review for Trekking

I have trekked with Milan both as an individual and as part of different groups to Everest, Manaslu circuit, Annapurna and Phokare. He is a wonderful, intuitive guide who takes great care and inspires confidence in all his clients. He is knowledgeable, friendly, fit, and good fun. He paces his treks well according to one’s needs and the challenges desired. He organized everything seamlessly from the hotel in Kathmandu, airport pick up and drop off to all the logistics en route.
He is very reassuring to clients (not only his own!) concerned about Acute Mountain Sickness and has shared his experience other guides who were less able in this respect. He is always welcome along the way always engaging with the locals who he seems to know well.
I felt very safe with him knowing that everything including the unforeseen is fully taken care of.
I have been impressed by his unfailing courtesy and diplomacy within the groups which makes trekking with him a pleasure for everybody. He is popular with his helpers, making sure that all is well for them. His English is pretty good too.
On the way back from Manaslu I changed my route plans: he was extremely accommodating and made it happen as I wanted without a problem.
He organized other activities for us including rafting all at a great price! There dosent seem much that he cannot do which has to be down to his experience.
It is hard to recommend him highly enough. He certainly has a special place in the heart of all those that trek with him.

Most Experienced and amazing trekking guide

Reviewed on Jan 18, 2016.

When my friend referred me of him I thought the person with such a huge experience and such a huge personality would trek with his clients. But was amazed it was really him. He though has great achievements and is one of the greatest personality did not behave so. He was simple as he looked. He was friendly and funny most of the times. He respected his profession and did not hesitate to go on a trekking with his clients though he was a owner himself and was also the reputed personality in the field of trekking and mountaineering.
He made our tour memorable. He was explaining each and every details about the place. He could also speak Gurung language with the locals and others. I will be visiting Shambhala Trekking Agency all the time I do trekking in Nepal and will be using him as our guide if he is available at that time.

High Recommendation for High Camp Trekking and Norsang Lama

Reviewed on Nov 30, 2015.

This was our second trek with High Camp Trekking and Norsang Lama. Our first was to Langtang in the fall of 2013.

Both trips were incredible! We are 2 retired professionals in reasonable good shape, ages 59 and 60, but we are no superstar trekkers.

Norsang was great from the start. He responded quickly to all emails with detailed packing lists and trip info. Once there he matches his pace to yours. He knows all the trails intimately. He gave us as much info as wanted regarding the cultures, religions and scenery. He just takes very good care of his clients.

We would never go with anyone else. Ever. He is not only a great guide, he also just a nice guy.
He is not only our one and only Nepali guide, he is our good friend.

Please contact me for anymore questions.

Arjun helped me to realize my dream.

Reviewed on Nov 16, 2015.

Without my tour guide Arjun, I would not be able to have gone up to Kala Patthar and seen Mt. Everest from up close. And I would not be able to finish the trek in 9 days, one day ahead of my tight schedule without his support. There isn’t enough space here for me to detail my experience and my gratitude. I would highly recommend him to my close friends.

Highlight of my trip to Nepal!

Reviewed on Jan 8, 2015.

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!


Reviewed on Jan 3, 2015.

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.

My brilliant guide!

Reviewed on Dec 6, 2014.

Massive thanks to Dmitry!!! I had such as great time trekking up to Annapurna Base Camp and Poon Hill Trek !
I had a great experience doing it too. We saw Buddhist monastery with many monks in flowing maroon robes and viewed many Buddhist religious items including prayer wheels and a courtyard where we watched many Buddhist monks debating with younger monks. It was amazing!
The trip was properly organized and we haven’t had any problems.
Really great service too: Jeep from airport, private bus to and from Pokhara, best loodges on the way and Dmitry was such a good guide, he taught me a few Nepalese words along the way.
This has been an amazing trekking that I will never forget.
I highly recommend this Guide for any trips in Nepal.
