Guide recommdendation: Norsang Lama, High Camp Trekking

We decided to go trekking with Norsang after trawling online forums for recommendations. We chose the Annapurna Circuit for a 16 days trek in February 2014. After contacting a number of possible independent guides and companies, Norsang provided the most comprehensive and detailed response with a background of our kit requirements, route to be taken what was or was not included and transport details. We requested some small changes to our itinerary (walking a section instead of taking a bus). Norsang was quite flexible and proposed an alternate plan that did what we wanted. Along the way we both found Norsang to be a very good guide with plenty of experience and a good head for making decisions on the trail but also a good host and a wealth of information about the local environment, culture, history, religion, politics and Nepal in general. He is also a great guy to get on with and speaks good English. Norsang was a great guide and the way the trek was structured with included food and accommodation made our live a lot easier and more straightforward when things got a little tougher. During our trek we had many comments (compliments) from others with and without guides that we had been lucky with our choice of guide and after 2 weeks on the road in various conditions I have to agree!

In 2013 we have completed the Manalsu Circuit Trek in November (prior to that we have done the full Annapurna Circuit with Chheduk Man Lama in October 2010). We would like to express our gratitude to Norsang Lama and his staff, especially Resham (guide) and Maila Tamang (porter). Thanks to Norsang and his team’s good will, fantastic organizational skills, advise and knowldege we had the most memorable time. We would highly recommend The ‘High Camp Trekking’ company to anyone wishing to visit Nepal. Norsang made everything we hoped for possible and within our reach.

Best wishes!

Great Guide Norsang Lama

Just got back from a fantastic trip in Nepal with two good mates. The whole experience was run really smoothly by our guide Norsang Lama (from the time he picked us up at the airport till he farewelled us two and a half weeks later). I also chose Norsang based on reiviews I had read by many of his previous happy clients and I was not disapointed. We had Norsang (guide) and his Uncle and younger brother as porters on the Annapurna BAse Camp trek in Jan 2013. Everthing was run so well. Norsang helped us hire good sleeping bags/geear at really good prices, arranged all our permits, transport, accommodation, meals etc, etc. He also had a fanstactic knowledge of all the mountains, villages etc. He and his Uncle and Brother also introduced us to Nepal card games in the evenings and even some great Nepali music along the way! He was a very thoughtful guide always putting our needs and wants first. He had the flexibiltiy to change our itierary if we wanted to change (ie. speed up or slow down) and always made sure that we were having a great experience.

His company is called High Camp Trekking.

Please contact me if anyone has any further more questions.

Langtang – Gosainkunca – Helambu with High Camp Trekking

September/October 2012 – 16 days trek to Langtang – Gosainkunda – Helambu with High Camp Trekking – Norsang Lama.

Having been for the first time in Nepal, we (three Austrians from Vienna and Salzburg) chose High Camp Trekking as our Trekking Tour Operator in Nepal, and we could not have done better. A family – run enterprise, High Camp Trekking offers the experience in the trekking and mountaineering business of more than one generation. Knowledge of how to organize and run trekking tours is being handed down from father to sons. Norsang Lama, manager of High Camp Trekking, not only gave us a helping hand in finalizing our individual trekking tour plan, but was also answering patiently and expertly to all out questions; and we were having quite a lot of them, concerning weather condisitons, trekking gear, packing weight,…!

The deal was made cler in Kathmandu on our arrival day. Price were reasonable, and we got good value for money. Everything went smoothly: Norsang came to pick us up at the guesthouse early next morning and, accompanied by his cousins Satya Man Tamang and Chamar Tamang, our guide and porter, put us on the bus to Syabru Besi; a day’s hike from Kathmandu, the road winding its way up and down along mountain crests in dizzy heights.

From Syabru Besi onwards it is all about walking, 1.000 meters of altitude up, 1.000 meters of altitude down again. Satya Man and Chamar did their best to make the trekking a pleasure to us; they were attentive to our needs, good-humoured, always willing to offer a helping hand, briefing us on each day’s hike, looking out for nice teahouses to stay. The more so, they have been sharing their experiences and their knowledge of the local people, their lives and their traditions with us. They showed us around gompas, yak cheese factories and whatever there was worth seeing. It was never any problem to change the daily itienrary according to our needs, having a rest day there, enjoying the spectacular scenery of ice-capped mountains and subtropical valleys, and speeding up the other day. All in all, we were having a great time, thanks to Norsang and his team, and the 16 days went by quickly.

We recommend High Camp Trekking as a reliable, professionally working trekking operator for any trekking destination in Nepal. We will certainly book with them again when being back in Nepal. For any further infromatoin, please contact me.

Great time trekking

It was our (my husband and I) first time trekking for 8 days and at high altitude. Both of us were a little worried about the altitude and not being in our best shape, including knee problems. ABC was great though at times rather challenging but we had a great time with Norsang and his brother who took totally care of us. We probably go back this year for EBC or Mustang and will chose him as our guide again. If you have any questions please contact me.
