Guide Shiva Thapa is recommended by Jo Foster

 I am writing to recommend Shiva Thapa as an excellent guide. I went on the "Royal Trek" with him in October, 2008, and he impressed me as a very pleasant, experienced, and dedicated professional who loves his work.

 I have strong ideas about the kinds of experiences I am looking for while trekking. Shiva listened well, better than any other guide I have hired, so he developed a great sense of what I wanted to see and do. He was always thinking about finding those kinds of experiences for me, so it was a wonderful, personalized trek. Shiva's interactions and involvement with local people along the way helped bring me closer to them, and have a lot of fun, too. He was also great about translating interesting little exchanges that he had with people, and adding in cultural context and insight when appropriate.

 Shiva is a thinker, his knowledge of the culture is deep, and his English skills are strong, so conversations with were very interesting and a big part of the experience. This and his fun and positive attitude make him great company, but he also knows when to allow space and quiet. He also has great integrity, so a single woman will have no worries with Shiva as her guide.

 The pacing was just right for my needs, and Shiva always was vigilant about health and safety. In my trek this primarily meant being very careful to be sure that food preparation and sanitation standards were appropriate in an area not all that used to Western tourists. This particular route was an easy one, but Shiva has many years of experience and very good training so I would not hesitate to recommend him for a trek of any length or difficulty level.
