After exchanging a few e-mails with Surya from Switzerland, he arranged a perfect program for the 3 of us. Our friends in Switzerland were quite sceptic about the idea of trekking with 4 years old,” No problem!” was Surya’s attitude and he proved to be more than right.
Not only did he arrange perfect accommodation for us in Thamel before our arrival, but he also arranged trekking permit, bus and taxi transportation etc. when we were here and knew the best restaurants where food is safe.
Once we were in Pokhara, he knew some easy hikes to get adjust to the climate, Perfect also to experience Nepali ways of life off the beaten tourist trade.
His friendly and open way to communicate with people not only made way to make the best deals en route but he also opened our shy girl’s heart- which in turn meant for us that she was carried on his back rather than ours only. When Nicole twisted her ankle really badly, he not only gave her the necessary physical and emotional support, but also managed to arrange a pony ride down the valley. Not an easy task with only pony available in the village and its owner being ( drunk?) at the sports festival. Instead of the basic lodges, I had envisaged from home, we stayed at clean mountain hotels, often in the best room with a large bed and private bathroom. Surya never missed to point out special sights on the way and was able to explain about Hindu and Buddhist religion, local culture, customs and traditions but also about the current situation in Nepal in fluent English and accurate vocabulary
