Sumek is an excellent tour guide, his English is good and his knowledge of Nepal and Tibet's history, including stories surrounding Mount Kailash was exceptional, there was never any rush and his explanations were very informative and he was always happy to be of assistance. Sumek was an absolute pleasure to have as our guide.
Sumek's expertise is in his trekking, abseiling and his way around ropes, carabenas and mountains. Without Sumek's expert hand, our group would not have successfully and safely completed our inner kora of Mount Kailash nor our parikrama of Mount Kailash.
Sumek was also very aware of our safety and would always watch over us to ensure that we were safe and also that we were taking sufficient liquids to keep ourselves healthy and ready for the trekking. Sumek would also go out of his way to ensure that each one of us was taken care of and not neglected."
Sumek was our lead guide to Everest Base Camp. The expedition was with a group of 16 and most were students aged between 14 and 18. Sumek and his guides were very good with the students, and without them our expedition would not have been possible. Sumeks knowledge and leadership were impressive and I look forward to our next expedition with them.
Sumek Adhikari was our guide in 2010 when we did the gruelling Kailash Manas Sarovar trip. His graceful and adept professionalism belie his boyish, matinee idol looks. A guide who enjoys his work, handles crises with cool expertise and comforts and encourages his team members, Adhikari took to his job like fish taking to water. His company afforded us a lot of pleasure and comfort. God bless him and may he go from strength to strength in his career.
I really enjoyed the trip with sumek , not only because of the amazing landscape but also because of the people. Some of the best moments from the trip came from interacting with our guides, but they were both fun and helpful.
We were privileged enough to have Sumek as our tour leader. He took care of every detail, made it very stress-free and relaxing for the group. We especially enjoyed Sumek's extensive knowledge of trekking in the Himalayas, the culture, religion, and the people that we weren’t even aware of before. We found it very interesting learning about the different ethnic groups and the detailed information about the monasteries, the majestic mountains and surrounding areas. Trekking
through the many villages also added so much warmth to the experience. Thank you so much Sumek - your an excellend leader and we thoroughly enjoyed every aspect and moment of our time spent in Nepal.
Sumek was a very helpful and enthusiastic guide on our trekking tour. He really gave us an experience of a lifetime. Also when a team member got sick he provided great help, which made us all feel very safe.
