Reviews

  • Somsikhar Jamali - November 21, 2018

    Dil Gurung is a safe pair of hands. This summarizes what he does in a nutshell. He has fantastic emotional quotient and is attentive to detail and to every single member of his expedition client team. I would go back with him to the Nepali Himalayas any time. I would endorse him as an excellent guide for an international audience. It is great to see that his enterpreneurship has led him to set up his own outfit. His maturity and conscientiousness are remarkable.

    Dil is an incredible guide with such attention to detail and focus on making your experience as comfortable and amazing as possible. Great for a good conversation and experienced enough to handle any situation. I've trekked with Dil a number of times and now consider him part of my Nepali family!
