Bimal Gurung is an experienced Nepalese trekking guide, born in the village of Okhle not far from one end of the Annapurna trekking circuit. Bimal grew up with a view of the Himilayas and has devoted his career to becoming a professional trekking guide. At the start of his career Bimal worked for established trekking companies taking clients into the main trekking regions of Nepal. In 2003 with his established knowledge and experience Bimal set up his own trekking company which he has been running ever since.

Bimal is lead guide for his own treks wherever possible with a deputy guide where the size of the group demands. Traditionally clients' luggage is transported by porters between the teahouses on route where guests spend the nights. The porters on all Bimal's treks come from his home village Okhle and the neighbouring villages, thereby directly supporting the local villagers and their families.

The most popular trekking areas in Nepal are Everest, Langtang and Annapurna. Bimal offers a flexible service ranging from a standard trek in one of the main trekking areas to your own fully personalised trek in any part of Nepal or even crossing the borders into neighbouring Tibet or India. The trekking season runs from October to May throughout the Nepalese dry season offering comfortable trekking conditions with cooler temperatures from December to February.

Alongside trekking, Bimal offers a full activity and tourism service throughout Nepal for you to experience the National Parks, cultural highlights and heritage of Nepal at their best.
