Active Himalayas are lucky to have 3 brothers all guiding for us! Shree is the younger and loves the mountains and Nepalese culture. He always creates a fun safe environment for his guests to get the most out of their Himalayan experience. Never without a positive word and an infectious smile Shree will be singing and dancing while sharing his knowledge of the Nepalese with you. He is based in Kathmandu with his wife and two beautiful young daughters.
“Shree changed my mindset in a way he may not have been intending to or trying to. He often reminded us Western type A's that what happened tomorrow didn't matter. All we needed to do was enjoy the moment -- not fret about it ending and not worry about what is to come. It made some of the most challenging physically times not just bearable, but enjoyable. ”

“Shree is so wonderful! He was the heart and soul of our group and our trip. He is kind and hilarious, always making us laugh or singing! He is so patient and always waited for the slower members of the group, making sure everyone was doing ok, all the time. His knowledge of place and culture was extremely valuable, and I loved learning everything about Nepal that he shared with us. ”

“Shree was also amazing. I enjoyed his company as well. Being Nepalese, it was nice to hear about Nepal and have him explain cultural aspects from his perspective. He was an encouraging guide at all times. He worked well with Kate and the porters. He jumped in and helped wherever. He always had a smile on his face. I enjoyed his humming and his great pace on the hike which helped me. At one point he saw I was uneasy about a bridge and let me go across first on my own so there would be less swaying. On another very narrow wooden bridge,he offered to walk across with me. I appreciated that.”
