Our established team of Tour Leaders have all attended the rigorous training, as well as leadership training organised by KEEP (Kathmandu Environmental Education Project).
Find out a bit more about our Nepali tour leaders
Kiran hails from the west of Nepal and has been leading Explore's treks for 11 years. His favourite trek of all is the Annapurna Sanctuary both for its challenges and variety as the trail ascends from around 1830 to 4200 metres.
In contrast Kiran recently led our very first 'comfort' trek in the Everest region which stays in cosy lodges with en suite facilities. Kiran remarks how much things have developed over his time as a leader. Now there really is something for everyone.
Bhakta Dev Singh
Bhakta is originally from Kathmandu but spent a long time in Chitwan where he worked as a naturalist guide in the National Park. This comes in useful on our treks as he's adept at spotting the unique fauna and flora of the Himalaya.
He's worked with Explore for 9 years in both Nepal and Tibet and enjoyed it all from both the culture of our Discover Nepal trip to trekking up to Everest Base Camp on our trek in Tibet.
