awesome guide !
Shanker was my guide when I signed up for the Everest base camp trek in April 2015. He was a very thoughtful and humorous man while has also paid great attention to detail at the same time, an awesome guide i would say. Unfortunately, on this particular trek, we were caught in the devastating 7.9 magnitude earthquake at Dingboche and had to turn back. While his hometown and family were in great need of help at that point of time, he maintained his professionalism and guided me throughout the trek. On top of that, he endeavored to get me flight tickets to Kathmandu from Lukla airport despite the chaotic mess in Lukla. During the entire trek, he gave advice to ensure safety and getting the maximum positive experience. All in all, Shanker is more of a friend than a guide. I highly recommend his services to anyone who wishes to trek in Nepal.
