“If you want a truly authentic Nepal trekking experience, then doing it with Independent Trekking Guide Cooperative is the best way to go. Headed up by Jagat Lama, this company takes a genuine interest in helping your trek be the journey of a lifetime. I have trekked with Jagat’s company twice and visited his home region of Kumari to deliver aid after the earthquake in 2015. Seeing how much he gives back to the community he came from is inspiring and knowing that a portion of the trekking fee goes to support health and education projects there keeps me wanting to travel with him on all my future trips to Nepal.
I came down with a bad bronchial infection while trekking in the Langtang region in November 2018. The guides looked after me, even carried some of my gear, making it possible to reach our destination of Holy Gosainkunda Lake. I come to Nepal for the mountains but the best memories I take home are the moments of laughter and sharing the journey with Jagat and his guides.”
