I have trekked with Jaya in Nepal twice now, and they are amongst the best experiences of my life. Five years ago we trekked to Everest base camp, including an extended walk from Jiri instead of flying into Lukla. We also took the Cho La pass to the Gokyo lakes. Jaya was a great guide then, making the trip run smoothly whilst also staying fun. I kept in touch with Jaya after this trip and did not hesitate to get back in touch when I decided on the second trip to Nepal this year. With time being tight on this trip Jaya created an itinerary to take us around the Annapurna circuit. This was expertly planned again and worked perfectly to our needs. Jaya is not just a good guide, but also a fun and trustworthy person to be around who seems to have friends at every turn. I would love to have the chance to travel with him again in the future.
