I worked with Nima on an expedition to Ama Dablam in 2012, and as our Sirdar he proved absolutely perfect in every step of the expedition. He made travel from Kathmandu simple, and was able to manage any issues that surfaced along the trek. We immediately felt safe in his hands, and this was reinforced once we hit base camp. His reserved and safe approach were appreciated on the peak, as well as his mountaineering knowledge (as a former Everest summiter). What wasn\'t immediately clear, but we as expedition members got to know afterwards, is Nima\'s warm side. His passion for his homeland and its people. Nima\'s care for the environment is genuine and infectious, and his network of friends in kind stretched through every teahouse and village we passed through during our month in Nepal. In a few words, he is: experienced, safe, honest, kind, and wise beyond his years. In fact, our relationship (and I know this is true for my expedition teammates, some of whom have returned to climb with Nima since) has only grown since passing back out of customs in Nepal. If you book with AOne Treks you will be assured a true experience, one he will easily tailor to your experience and needs.
