Nara Bahadur Bohara has been my friend since 2000 when he was my guide/porter for a Jiri-Jiri trek to Everest base Camp. Since then he has either been my guide/porter, or more recently my trek organizer for 9 treks, either to Everest Base Camp, the Annapurna Circuit or Annapurna Base Camp. He has always been at the airport to meet & greet me, and always accompanied me back to the airport, feeling fit, refreshed and in good spirits.
He has many characteristics that make him perfect for the job he does. He is a diligent organizer with incredible attention to detail. He’s great at helping to arrange trekking permits in Kathmandu, helping to change airline tickets or accompanying me on shopping or sightseeing trips.
Many trekkers have remarked on how fortunate I have been to have had such a great companion. His English is very good; he has a natural charisma & sense of humour and laughs easily. On trek he always dusts off my rucksack before putting it in my teahouse room; he takes my order for food, and serves it and is always a useful extra pair of hands in lodges, helping light and feed the stove and helping out in whatever way he can. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of Nepalese folk songs, and entertains guests and fellow porters alike with his expert singing and dancing.
Most importantly, Nara is a wonderful companion. He always helps me across icy trails. The first time I crossed the Annapurna he took me by the arm and helped me down through the snow; with darkness approaching, he carried my rucksack and led me to Muktinath. In short, Nara enabled me to achieve goals I never thought I could achieve.
At the end of a trek, back in Kathmandu, he knows how to have a celebratory party. As another contributor so succinctly wrote, “Nara Bahadur Bohara embodies the wonderful spirit of the Nepalese people. He was in a word, perfect. I truly cannot recommend him enough”. Hear hear!
We were trekking to Annapurna Base Camp in spring 2014. Our guide was Nara Bahadur Bohara. He was not only a great guide but also a fantastic companion. We felt very safe with him and spent absolutly superb 2 weeks in Himalayas. I recommend Nara to all those who want to travel to Nepal and spend great time there.
Recently, I did Annapurna base camp Trek with Master Himalaya Company. This trek is not so easy but the way our guide Mr. Kb trained me...I completed it without any difficulties. I wish, I will come back again next year with this company for Everest base camp Trek.
We had very good communication with Pradeep when discussing the track. Everything went according to plan. We had a great guide Nara who has 25 years of experience in tracking. I highly recommend the Master of the Himalayas and our guide for performing trekking in the Himalayas.
Thank you guys!!!
My husband and I did the Everest Base Camp trek with Nara. I had been trekking a few times in Nepal before, but Nara is the BEST guide we've ever had. He arranged all our rentals, housing, permits, etc. with ease. He even negotiated discounts for us at several teahouses along the way. He is very knowledgeable and very kind. Our trip with him was truly the trip of a lifetime and I would highly recommend him. We will definitely be using him again if we travel to Nepal again.
I had already 4 different trekkings organized by Nara: Kalla Pattar + Cholla Pass + Gokyo; Everest base camp + climbing on Island Peak; Annapurna base camp; Langtang + Chitwan. All had been perfectly organized and not overcharged. Nara is really a professional guide and a nice companion. Bogdan B. (Poland)
Nara guided my friend Anna and me so well during our EBC trek, we didn't have any altitude sickness, we were really well taken care of. While coming down, Anna got sick with cold and Nara took really good care of her.
He also made sure we got the best views, got the best information and stay on top of our health during our whole trip.
I would recommend anyone to have Nara as their Guide for EBC or ABC trek in Nepal.
Nara led my wife and I on the Mt Everest base camp trail back in January 2010. He was terrific...absolutely no complaints! Took us 10 days going up and 2 coming down because we wanted to get back by that Sunday. He helped us rent gear/clothes for the trek. I would highly recommend Nara! And: Winter has much better visibility than Summer...enjoy the experience of the cold and get better pictures!
We did Everest base camp tour by helicopter. It was awesome experience. This guys has collaboration with Air dynasty helicopters so they give us the best price. Even best price than The helicopter company we asked previously. And once again the tour was awesome, it took 3 hours but we felt like it was just 3 mins.
