  1. I have just completed a 26 days trek in the Kanchenjunga area, Eastern part of Nepal, with Gyan Katuwal, known to us as GB Katuwal, as our Guide/Sirdar. i was member of a 6-person group conducting engineering, health and education work for the Kanchenjunga School Project. Organization for our group was complex. We carried extra supplies for the project work and spent several days working along the route. GB speaks English and assisted with the project work and provided language translation during our workdays and ensured that we were well supported in each village. GB had a strong sense of responsibility towards our group and supported each person individually. I personally experienced his support during a difficult climb of Deorali Danda early in the trek. His manner is professional and he is respectful of his clients, always reliable and quietly good company. He is honest and forthright, essential qualities in a guide/sirdar. In turn GB is respected by the porters, kitchen staff and assistant guides. He managed the team very well to accommodate our needs. I happily recommend GB Katuwal as a Guide/Sirdar. I can answer, questions and confirm this reference by return email.

  2. This was my first experience with GB and his crew and I can honestly say I was most impressed with the entire experience. I have had extensive experience both trekking and climbing in Nepal, so am no neophyte, and am not easily impressed; nonetheless GB exceeded all my expectations on what services a company should provide.
    In addition, apart from being 73 years old I have multiple medical issues that include bilateral knee replacements, a shoulder replacement, aortic valve replacement, amputations of all fingers and toes, making trekking a challenge, yet the itinerary was planned in such a way I was never taxed physically, and we reached our goals comfortably. This gives me the confidence to plan a trip in the future with my grandchildren, ages 11 and 8. Thank you GB you are a gem!!
