Annapurna Circuit

Visited April 2018

Wir hatten die Gelegenheit, mit Gelu und seinen Assistenzguides Dorje und Dawa im April 2018 die Annapurna Umrundung zu machen. Die Tour hielt einige körperliche Herausforderungen bereit durch die Passage des Thorung La. Dabei haben sich Gelu und sein Team immer umsichtig und rücksichtsvoll um alle Teilnehmer unserer Gruppe gekümmert. Wann immer es Probleme, Fragen oder Wünsche gab,  stets gab es ein offenes Ohr auf Seiten der Guides und Sicherheit ging stets vor.

Die Reise wurde so ein ein unvergessliches Erlebnis dank der hervorragenden Betreuung durch Gelu und die Assistenzguides. Für ein paar Wochen waren wir wie eine kleine Familie und auch nach der Reise sind die Freundschaften mit Gelu und anderen Mitreisenden geblieben. Vielen Dank!

Review poon hill tripReview Trip Poon Hill

Annapurna Circuit

Visited November 2017

I am writing this Review on behalf of our Trip to Poon Hill. I was with Gelu Sherpa and the porter Dawa the little Annapurna round 2017 in October / November. It was my first visit to the wonderful country of Nepal and I was excited if I could make it to the stages and with the condition of all the circumstances. But the worries were unfounded because I had Gelu at my side.

During the stay in Kathmandu and Pokhara as well as on the whole tour he took care of everything. In the accommodations, we had good rooms and even such small problems as the handling of the foreign ATMs.The road took us from Kathmandu, where it is essential to take some time for the metropolis via Pokhara at the beginning of the tour, the highlight of  which was the view of Poon Hill.

There you have at sunrise a wonderful view of e.g. the Machhapuchhre and other peaks in the sunrise. Poon Hill trek is also a popular trekking destination for the Annapurna region trek. Poon hill at 3,210 meters is also a famous viewpoint of a trekker’s paradise. Anyone with a moderate level of physical fitness can join this trek. Gelu was always there, explained, pointed out special features, motivated and helped.

Especially for beginners who want to get to know the country I can recommend this trip and especially under the guidance of Gelu. I myself hope that I can do another tour soon. This is only short review about my trip to Poon Hill.

Ladakh Trip

Visited July 2018

I am Dieter form Germany & writing this review about our Ladakh trip with Gelu sherpa.  In the summer of 2018 we visited Ladakh for the first time for two weeks. The highlight for us was a seven-day trekking from village to village with accommodation in homestays. In addition to the grandiose landscape, the friendliness of the people and their Buddhist serenity made us especially impressive.

With Gelu Sherpa from Nepal we had a friendly, open-minded and always approachable tour guide. As a local guide, the always funny and knowledgeable Wangchuk from Ladakh accompanied us. Before and after the trekking were also the visits of various monasteries and the drive to the Nubra Valley by crossing Khardung la the world’s highest motorable road. very interesting.

In Nubra valley we walked through a gorgeous stretch of sand dunes of this high altitude cold desert surrounded with snow capped mountains. We walked over this sandy trail to Diskit village which is amongst the larger village in the region and visit the famous Diskit Monastery situated on the top of a cliff. This has an elevated cupola, with a fresco depicting the Tashilhunpo gompa of Tibet. The gompa roof offers glorious/magnificent view of Nubra valley. Later we drive to Sumoor and visit the Monastery at Sumoor.

A small but adrenalin-rich highlight was the river rafting. Gelu and Wangchuk always had an open ear for us guests and we spent two exciting weeks in the Himalayas. This was short review, but unforgettable memory on our Ladakh trip.

Everest Base Camp

Visited February 2015

“At the end of February 2015, I was traveling with Gelu Sherpa in a guided tour to Everest Base Camp Trek, it was all very well organized and Gelu was the perfect travel companion, very charming and funny, he has a great deal of knowledge about the area People, the mountains and culture and religion.

Our trekking was very good, except for a late winter break in the Khumbu Valley, where we were then snowed. The Porters and Sherpas did everything, the treks were cleared and we were able to get back to Namche Bazar. Unfortunately, we had to change the route due to the snow and then made the slightly lower trek from the airport Lukla to Jiri. A wonderful trekking tour, where you got to know original Nepal with its lovely people and their way of life very authentically. It was still two very strenuous snow-covered passes on the route that demanded everything from us.

Overall, you can fully trust Gelu Sherpa and his organization, everything is well organized and I would plan with him again on my next trip to Nepal.

Gokyo Trek

Visited October 2018

Im Oktober waren wir zum zweiten Mal in Nepal. Wir hatten eine Tour in das Everest  Gebiet gebucht und Gelu Sherpa war unser Guide. Unser Ziel war Gokyo von dem wir schon so viel gehört hatten. Wir starteten in Phablu und die nächsten 15  Tage führte uns  Gelu durch die atemberaubende  Landschaft seiner Heimat, dem Land der Sherpa. Gelu  verfügt über 20 Jahre Trecking Erfahrung und war nicht nur ein hervorrragender Guide was Organisation und Gespür für unsere körperlichen Möglichkeiten betraf, sondern er hatte auch  Antworten auf alle unserer Fragen. Er erklärt uns die Kultur der Sherpa, konnte jede Bergspitze benennen und  eine Geschichte aus eigener Erfahrung mit uns teilen.  Er mahnte uns langsam zu gehen uns nicht unter Druck zu setzen und strahlte dabei  grosse Gelassenheit aus. Auch in schwierigen Situationen  behielt  er kühlen Kopf und war beeindruckend  professionell in seinem Handel. Aufgrund seiner hervorragenden Deutschkenntnisse und seinem Gespür  für die Sprache und Menschen hatten wir ein sehr freundschaftliches und problemloses miteinander. Wir hatten das Gefühl mit einem Fremden die Reise begonnen und mit einem Freund beendet zu haben. Vielen Dank für alles und viel Glück.
