We do this trek combined three highlights such as Poon Hill, Annapurna Base Camp, and Jhinu Hot spring etc. Poon Hill is the famous viewpoint with Sunrise views on the panoramic Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. Annapurna Base Camp has a 360-degree splendid view of towering Annapurna range between 6000m to 8091m peaks and lies on the heart of the Annapurna range. We head to Jhinu Hot spring at the bank of the Modi River and enjoy the natural hot water bath after we come back from coldness ABC.

Rhododendron flowers bloom colorfully at an elevation between 1400m to 3300m en-route of Annapurna Base Camp Trek in spring (March to May). Machhapuchhare is also known as Fishtail (6993m) which is the most attractive, beautiful and trekker’s favorite mountain in the Himalayas of Nepal.

The Langurs (white monkeys) often see around Tadapani and Modi Khola valley between Sinuwa and Doban. Donkeys, cows, goats and water buffalos come across on the trail. Many types of birds sing early in the morning. The local’s daily life can see in the Uleri, Chhumrung, Sniwa, Landruk and Dhampus villages.

There are a few avalanches hit sections between Himalaya to Machhapuchhare Base Camp. We do have the latest information on trail condition. The fresh snow encounters at ABC from January to March.

This letter serves as a high recommendation for Chheduk Man Lama. Not only was he the Sirdar (lead Sherpa) for our American team’s successful 1994 climb of Dhaulagiri, but has also supported me as Sirdar for Nepal treks for over 12 years. Some of the particulars are described below:

Most recently, Chheduk Man was our Sirdar for approach to Dhaulagiri base camp and managed our base camp while we climbed the mountain. Dhaulagiri is the 6th highest mountain in the world. As always, Chheduk Man did an excellent job. He was responsible for transporting our 3,000 pounds of gear from Kathmandu to base camp and back again. He also dealt effectively with the complex issues that arose in hiring porters over the holidays as often can happen in Nepal. Everything in base camp ran smoothly and efficiently.

I have worked with Chheduk Man since 1983. He has been my Sirdar for 5 full service treks ranging from 19 to 25 days in addition to the climb described above. He has many contacts and is able to build an excellent crew.

The areas we trekked in were as follows:

Fall 1983 Kanchenjanga Region.
Fall 1988 Jugal Himal
Fall 1989 Rolwallling
Spring 1990 Langtang
Fall 1991 Makalu Base Camp
Fall 1994 South of Dhaulagiri

Additionally, I have referred many people to Chheduk Man. They have all returned very pleased with the service he has provided them. Chheduk Man is not only an efficient and resourceful leader, but is a warm and special individual who is cared about by and has been befriended by most of the people on the treks over the years.

I would recommend Chheduk man without reservation. Please contact me on the following address if you need more information.

Annapurna Circuit (Jomsom to Besishar) for 9 days.

Having found Norsang’s email on the internet, we asked him for assistance in organizing our Annapurna Circuit Trip. As we were on a tight schedule we asked whether he could put together a more unorthodox circuit from Jomsom to Besishar – effectively doing it the wrong way! Norsang confirmed that we would be able to handle the steep ascent and we completed the 140km over 9 magical days in August 2007.

Over and above providing us with a tailor-made trek, Norsang proved to be invaluable in co-ordinating most of our time in Nepal, including sightseeing around Kathmandu and our trip to Chitwan National Park. For anyone wanting to find a guide intent on fulfilling your wants and needs, I would definitely recommend you hire Norsang as your guide.

We had an amazing time and it will be etched into our memories.

Thanks Norsang!

Norsang was our guide on a trekking holidays in Khumbu (Everest Region), Nepal for 17 days from 6 October to 22 October 2007. I was part of a small group of 3 people from New Zealand.

I would highly recommend Norsang to anyone considering a trekking adventure in Nepal. We found him to be a very competent, friendly young man who took his responsibilities for client welfare seriously, making sure we acclimatized to the altitude safely.

With Norsang we were able to plan our itinerary and cover all the attractions we wished to visit in the Everest region, including Thame, Gokyo Ri 5357m, Cho La Pass 5368m, Everest Base Camp 5364m, Kala Pattar 5545m. A flexible itinerary allowed us to make up a day so we were also able to trek up the beautiful valley Chhukung, climb Chukung Ri 5550m and trek to Island Peak Base Camp. Norsang speaks English well. He has a wide knowledge of the mountains and the culture of the Sherpa people and always willing to answer our many questions. I noticed that he was held in high regard by the Lodge managers, whom he knew well and he always planned ahead to ensure we had accommodation.

Norsang employed two porters (Pasang and Karma Sherpa) for us, two men he uses regularly that he knew to be reliable. He ensured his porters were well accommodated.

Please contact me if you wish to discuss Norsang’s suitability to guide your trip or to find out more about our trek.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek

We had the pleasure of having Norsang as our guide during our recent trek to Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) in March 2008; there were 6 of us (Barb Repcen, Heather Steen, Melanie, Nikki, Jeanette Waters and Christopher Hurren) in the group. Having a guide and being part of a larger group was ideal; we were able to change the route to suit requests.

Norsang was very professional, organized and throughout the trek, every day ran smoothly. Norsang was very tuned into our needs and any limitations we had. He is very personable and has a very cheersfull personality. Norsang and the porters had a vast knowledge of the trekking route and the mountains and they were very willing to share it. When we returned to Pokhara and Kathmandu Norsang continued to guide us around the tourist areas and shared his love of Nepal with us. We got to see a lot more of the culture and sights of Nepal than we would have been able to see if we were on our own. Really with Norsang nothing is too much trouble he is really a very genuine and like bale guy. Some of us intend to return to Nepal and do another trek with Norsang we all look forward to seeing him again.

I am happy for anyone to contact me if they need a reference for Norsang on addresses:

Hi everyone,

I recently hiked the Annapurna Circuit with a great guide, Norsang Lama. I was a solo traveler, and it was because of him that my trip was so incredible. He was extremely friendly with both me and the locals, many of whom he knew already, his memory was like an almanac, and he treated me like a king –he made sure I would get my tea first! His English is great, he’s very professional at what he does, and he puts YOU first.

Recommendation of Norsang Lama from French visitors …

Nous avons fait deux treks organisés par Norsang Lama, le premier au Kangchenjunga en 2003 et le second au Dolpo en 2009.

Norsang est un guide très fiable que je recommande vivement. Il ne parle pas français mais communique très facilement en anglais ; il est sympathique, organisé, discret, attentif aux besoins des personnes qu’il accompagne.

Il adaptera l’itinéraire à vos envies particulières, il organise des camps en tente aussi bien qu’en lodge. Il saura vous faire découvrir des régions peu visitées, mais également les grands treks classiques. Il s’occupe des éventuelles réservations des vols intérieurs. Ses devis sont précis et ses tarifs très intéressants.

Norsang and the porter he uses (Karma) were fantastic…

Stephen Senior

I also used Norsang for my trek this March 2010. This was the first time I had used a guide or even been to Nepal and I must admit I was nervous about handing over a pile of cash to some total stranger! But, both Norsang and the porter he uses (Karma) were fantastic… they took care of all my needs, they are especially friendly and taught me a lot about the local culture – even how to play some of the various card games they all played.

We completed Gokyo Ri, Cho La Pass, Kalapattar and EBC. This was a difficult trek for me as four days before flying out to Kathmandu I was back in hospital with a knee problem having injections etc – I couldn’t even walk around the local park at that stage. They created a bespoke itinerary to take account of his and showed great patience with me and we had many laughs together.

They made the trek possible and ensured I had a fantastic time. Again a big thanks to them both. Norsang, His brother and father run a typical small but high quality business together.

If anyone requires any more information then feel free to send me a DM.

We found our guide, Norsang Lama, on Internet.

Hi everyone also,

During spring 2010, I decided with a friend to do a trek in the Langtang Valley – Gosainkunda Lake – Helambu.

We found our guide, Norsang Lama, on Internet.

With his help, everything was planned and organized perfectly. From the first day at the Airport to the end of the trek and the visit of Kathmandu, his advices were very helpful. He is a very friendly person and knows a lot of things about politics, Buddhism, wild, and Nepal in general.

With his help, we could climb Tsergo Ri 5000 summit without experience of high altitude and talk to Nepali people in the villages.

I strongly recommend you to contact him if you want to go to Nepal, and I hope I’ll see him again next time I want to do a trek!

Thanks again to him and to the porter (Shyam): you were both fantastic and we only have wonderful memories of this trip!

Don’t hesitate to contact me if you want more information!

Langtang – Gosainkunda Lake – Helambu Trek for 12 days.

Eric Joly
2018-08-17 16:25:51

We appreciated very much the Langtang – Gosainkunda Lake – Helambu Trek for 12 days with Norsang Lama and his team at High Camp Trekking. You have organized for us during our holidays in Nepal, end of October 2010. It gave us fantastic opportunities to see the Mt. Langtang Lirung (7234m) and to visit the Gosainkunda Lakes region. Then, we were able to walk down to Kathmandu, with very scenic views of the Helambu area.

Our group included 3 ladies and 6 gentlemen, all French citizens, between 30 and 60+ years of age. The way you had organized this trek was very professional: adequate balance between walking times and rest times, good selection of nice places to enjoy tea breaks, lunch and night accommodations, etc… In all circumstances, you always provided good advices and high altitude safety concern. Furthermore your team (5 porters) did a great job in supporting us during the trek. You were taken good care of us upon our arrival in Nepal and during our whole stay in Kathmandu.

If we have the chance to come back to beautiful Nepal for another trek, we will for sure get in touch with you and your team to help us organizing it.

I had a wonderful time trekking to EBC in February 2011.

On my first visit to Nepal I had a wonderful time trekking to EBC in February, at the end of the winter season. I had little trekking experience and Norsang helped ensure that I was well prepared and guided me every step of the way. Right from being picked up from the Airport Norsang organized everything around my requirements and I was able to focus on just enjoying the experience. After the trek he took me on fascinating sightseeing tours around Kathmandu. Norsang not only knows the Everest region but all around Nepal and I highly recommend Norsang as a guide to anybody visiting or trekking in Nepal.

Norsang Lama email is he is licensed by the country of Nepal and has been a trekking guide over 10 years.
