Your Kandoo guides

Ducks with ama dablamWe have carefully chosen our guides to ensure that every trek is a safe and fun experience for all of our clients.

They all have many years of experience guiding in the Himalya, and are licensed by the Nepal Mountaineering Association.

Both our climbing guides, Jyamchang and Pimba, have climbed and summited Mount Everest twice and are qualified to the prestigious IMG standard.

All of our guides come from the Sherpa region which sits at high altitude in the far East of Nepal near to the border with China.  Life in these villages is extremely tough and it is these conditions that produce the strongest, toughest guides who are used on all the Everest expeditions. 

Extended families are still normal in Nepal and through cross marriage between villages nearly everyone in the region is related. You will find that all our guides are cousins, second cousins, nephews etc. These family bonds mean that all the crews work together extremely well and are extremely trustworthy.
