GB and Himalayan Darshan Treks organized a group of nine friends from New Zealand, USA and Australia on a wonderful, varied and memorable adventure, that included trekking, wildlife viewing, hot pools, authentic food, clean accommodation and excellent information. GB was our guide throughout our time in Nepal. He provided clear emails in the planning stage so that we were all clear about accommodation, transport, itinerary and costs. From the moment he met us at the airport until delivered back there again after three weeks of a thought provoking experience, he was kind, thoughtful and an excellent communicator. For the Annapurna Base Camp trek he had arranged caring porters who fitted into the group, accommodation at the tea houses, all food requirements and answers to the many questions. Most importantly he kept us safe at all times, kept us away from avalanches, and helpful to our mainly over sixties group.
I recommend Gyan Katuwal (GB) and Himalaya Darshan Treks very highly for their excellent organization, communication and kindness.

I was referred to GB and Himalaya Darshan Treks from a well-traveled friend from Colorado. He recommended GB because of his vast experience in the region, his integrity and his ability to solve problems quickly in some of the most difficult places on earth. My wife and I took his advice and booked a remote trek in the Manaslu region. GB and his team became close friends on our trek and we were impressed with his kindness, knowledge and good nature. When we ran into a potential health scare at the trips high point, GB acted quickly and was able to get us back to safety. He understands the mountains having grown up in the shadow of Mt. Everest and puts his clients safety first. After our Manaslu trek had such a great time we booked another trek with GB. We remain close friends and regularly communicate about our families and the mountains. I highly recommend GB as you will not find a more kind and seasoned guide in Nepal.

I have had the pleasure of having Gyan as my guide on three separate treks in Nepal. My first trek with Gyan was to Annapurna Base Camp in 2010. It was the first time I ever traveled alone, so I, and my very worried parents, were very meticulous when it came to finding a good guide. Gyan came very highly recommended and his service surpassed all of my expectations! Despite the fact that I only hired him to be my guide, on the third day of the hike when I got sick (I think from bad nak cheese..), Gyan insisted on carrying my backpack. I hadn't even told him that I wasn't feeling well. He then continued to carry my pack for the rest of the hike!
I was so impressed by Gyan's kindness, dedication, and knowledge, that I have never considered trekking with any other guide. He goes above and beyond, every step of the way. Before any trek, he plans a detailed itinerary of the trek, makes all the changes I request for, and tries to keep the trek within my budget. During the treks, he always makes sure that I am safe, well fed, and well informed without being overbearing. And, after the treks, Gyan never fails to wish me goodbye at the end of the trip.
I have many fond memories trekking with Gyan and I highly recommend him to all my friends, family, and anyone I meet who is planning a trek in Nepal. Over the years, Gyan has not only become my "go to guide", but also a good friend. A trek in Nepal would not be the same without him as a guide!
