I have gone on two hikes with Suraj from Pokhara. Once when I was a solo female hiker, and the next with my family. I highly recommend Suraj as a guide. His incredibly knowledgeable, I learned so much from him about Nepal and the wildlife. Being a Pokhara native, he suggested the perfect hike for us. He has a kind heart and is very patient. Even after our hike ended, he called us the next day to make sure we could see the beautiful sunrise of Annapurna from Pokhara. He goes above and beyond and always made sure we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves. He takes the best photos too, we are so grateful for the memories! We will use Suraj every time we visit Nepal, he feels like a close family friend now!
