Balaram Tamang was our Porter/Guide for a 24-day trek to Kanchenjunga Base camp in October/November 2011. Balaram was at all times an excellent guide who showed superb leadership skills in looking after his clients. All three of us have much experience in training and assessing leadership skills in Mountain Areas in the UK, and we all could see what a natural and good leader Balaram was. In difficult places he took great care of our safety, waiting for slower members to catch up, choosing rest places often and showed a good knowledge of the trek. He was always in good humor and was splendid with local people. At all times he showed a strong sense of duty towards us as clients.We can happily recommend Balaram to any future clients.Pitom Limbu was our Porter for a 24 day trek to Kanchenjunga Base camp in October/November 2011. Pitom was not the guide but he typically gave help and advice in route finding and worked very well with the guide, Balaram Tamang. He never complained about changes in his load and in the guest houses we stayed in, he was very helpful, good humored and took great care of us. This was much more than his normal duty.
We can happily recommend Pitom to any future clients.
