When I revisited Nepal, after 12 years, in October/ November this year, it was such a pleasure to meet Deepen again, now an experienced, professional Tour Guide with an extraordinary ability to customize a tour that includes the heritage sites in Kathmandu Valley as well as give you insights about Nepal and everyday life. He has an amazing knowledge about buddhist philosophy, symbols, art, Nepal history and culture and has a very open, friendly personality. Seemingly without effort Deepen takes every opportunity to share his knowledge and invite you to new learning experiences. Besides being knowledgeable, he is very respectful, curious and has a good sense of humour. I´m glad we have become friends and I can highly recommend Deepen as an exellent tour guide!
