Welcome to the legendary country of the Himalayas: Nepal!

I introduce myself, I am Yam Bahadur Gurung and I am an independent hiking guide and a tour operator with, as a specialty, adventure tourism for the practice of trekking and mountaineering.

Why choose an independent guide?

Most trekking agencies are not opened  change and adaptation during a trek. Being independent allows ethical and responsible remuneration of staff and total control of finances. So I have complete freedom to re-allocate resources in case of unforeseen and the ability to surround myself with a quality team that is paid properly.

Since 2004 I conducted, in the highest professionalism, a large number of expeditions of different sizes. I have references from many young and older customers from all over the world. I know particularly well the difficulties related to the trek, like the changing route if the path is not practicable, precautions to be taken as soon as one goes up in altitude or all the types of housing to bivouac. I speak fluently English and French.

Feel free to tell me about your trekking project, I will be happy to establish a personalized offer corresponding to your budget. I answer in a very short time if that I am not in trek of course. In this case the delay can be extended by a day or two.

I adapt to all types of requirements and levels of trekking or mountaineering to provide you, for sure, a unique and unforgettable experience. Whether trekking at high altitude or more cultural routes through typical villages and visiting beautiful temples. I have a good knowledge of the more touristic regions as well as more protected areas like Dolpo for example.

I will be happy to share with you my knowledge of the culture of different Nepali villages as well as unique natural environments.

No pass is ​​unreachable, if well prepared, and most of them can be reached by a beginner  if the acclimation period and fatigue are properly managed. Here is a non exhaustive list of passes that I regularly climb with my customers: Throngpass, Chola pass, Ganjalapass, Tilichopass (Mesokundapass), Singlapass, Kalaphatar, Gokyo ri, Tserku ri, Larkyepass, Kanglapass, Rupinalapass, Laurenbinayakpass, Tsumvalley, ABC, Mustang, Dolpo, Helembu, Kanchenjunga, etc.

I propose you a unique service combining cultural discovery and / or sports performance by adapting to your request to offer you an experience forever etched in your memory. Get ready to explore one of the most extraordinary places in the world, where a thousand-year-old culture has evolved among the most majestic and high mountains of this planet.

So, if you plan to visit our beautiful country, do not hesitate to contact me, I will be delighted to accompany you in this adventure! Let me take care of everything from your arrival by plane to your return. I can organize everything, transportation, accommodation, special visits in addition to trekking routes and administrative formalities (permit, fees, etc.). I take care of everything so that you only have to concentrate on your trip.

I can advise you for local food and also make you live a unique moment in the village where I grew up: Laprak, a remote village in the Gorkha region (Manaslu). This one, located at the epicenter of the April 25, 2015 earthquake that hit our entire country, was devastated and is being rebuilt.

Since then I employ members of my team (porter, cook, etc) coming as much as possible from my village to help them to rebuild their home and their life.

Looking forward to your questions and requests to visit this amazing country, beautiful and full of spirituality.

Franck Costes,
Departure : trek Népal

Je recommande fortement de faire appel à Yam pour l'organisation d'un trek au Népal. C'est un super guide et quelqu'un de très gentil qui prend soin de vous. On a été vraiment dorloté pendant 25 jours de trek dans les Annapurnas.
Le prochain trek au camp de base de l'Everest, je passerai évidemment par lui !

Estelle Louf,
Departure : Trek

Au cours de mes différents séjours, je n'ai pas trouvé de guide plus attentionné et investi que Yame. Il a su me faire découvrir son pays, sa culture, me renseigner et m'informer là où d'autres se contenteraient de répondre "cela ne fait pas partie de la prestation".
Un sourire et un entrain, un respect que je vous recommande, n'hésitez pas à faire appel à Yame !

Bastien Sarla,
Departure : Grand tour of Annapurna

I warmly recommend Yame as a guide for your travel to Nepal. He is a very kind and honest person, you can trust him. We made an unforgettable trek trough the deepest lands of the Annapurnas with him, he has been able to adapt his rythm to our physical conditions, and was always present at any moment of our trip.
He speaks French and English fluently. This guide is very close to his customer and he worried a lot about your well being, try to make you comfortable in all the place you stay. Nature lover and Nepal lover, he will show you all the best of his country and his mountains.
Thanks to him we could enjoy completely our experience in Nepal.

Daniel Trocmé,
Departure : Trek

Yam est un homme de confiance. J'ai eu le bonheur de faire un trek de 18 jours avec Yam, en 2008. Depuis, je suis devenu son ami, je le connais bien.
Il m'a fait découvrir sa région, les villages autour de Laprak, sa famille, et nous avons passé Singla Pass. Il sait gérer la sécurité, en souplesse, en écoutant les voyageurs et les porteurs.
Calme, discret, et aussi prêt à discuter de tous les sujets et à accompagner ses hôtes dans leurs découvertes. Quel souvenir ! Je repartirais bien avec lui !
J'ai plusieurs points de comparaison, dans les Andes, l'Atlas ou ailleurs... il est au top, vous pouvez faire appel à lui en toute confiance.

Tule Gurung,
Departure : Super guide

Yame est un bon guide de l'Himalaya au Népal. Il organise des treks indépendants dans toutes les régions et il a une bonne expérience en randonnée.

Antoine Retours,
Departure : Very good guide

Yame est un super guide, il sera à votre écoute, il est très professionnel et respectueux, je vous le recommande ! Nous avons été au camp de base de l'Everest : au top !
