I met Padam as part of an organised group from the UK, with Padam being the guide and leading a team of local porters. It was a 9-day trek in the Langtang Valley and Gosaikund Lakes. The mountains are Padam’s office and you can be assured of a memorable trip. Padam is such a warm-hearted and kind person, it was such a joy being with him. He was open and friendly and happy to talk and share his knowledge about so many topics. While he was great getting involved and taking care of the group, he also worked extremely hard in the background, planning, supervising, checking details and making sure everything went smoothly. He was the first up and last to bed, even after a long and tiring day. I have huge respect for Padam and woudl recommend anyone to work with him. I can’t wait for the next adventure!
