I speak English language well. For further more detail, feel free contact me, please. I am ready for your service all the time.

Surely a guide is so useful in our short or long trip that he/she is working always in the same field. Those guides who are professionally working they have good knowledge of their working sector. Even hiring a guide at our trip is not a great deal.
In our Manaslu trekking, we had hired guide Ratna Lama. We are fully satisfied on his serivice. He has been working professionally too. He is honest, good, humour,dutiful,patient and friendly among all people. He speaks an English language well. This is why, we are recomending him to use as a guide on the trekking way of Nepal who wants guide in future. Anyway he will provide you good service.
