The Himalayas have always held a spiritual reverence for me and my trek to Poon Hill with Bam Magar elevated that experience to such heights that I’m now inspired to start my own business in Sydney- spiritual treks and tours with yoga and meditation and...Bam Magar of course!
I first met Bam when I was on the Everest Base Camp Trek 2 years ago. He was the guide for a family I had befriended on the trek and as we spent much time together, I was drawn to Bam’s vast knowledge and experience of the Khumbu region. Invariably I found myself leaning in share his expertise and interesting anecdotes with his trekking family- much to the annoyance of my own very young trekking guide at the time, I might add!
So when I decided that my next trek was going to be the Annapurna Panorama, I immediately engaged Bam as my guide. Together with Dhaktipa, our porter we set out from Pokhara for an amazing 5 day adventure. Bam’s skill and professionalism of an expert trekker/guide, together with his easy going sense of humour; caring and friendly personality, was the perfect combination to build an awesome camaraderie in our team. Throw in the beautiful, blooming rhododendrons and other glorious species of flora, set in the picturesque natural landscapes, the magic of the magnificent Annapurna Range will certainly capture your heart and soul. A trekking journey with pocketful of perfect picturesque memories to treasure for a lifetime. Thank you Bam.
We would highly recommend booking any trekking holidays with Bam Magar as your guide. Bam met us in Kathmandu at our hotel as soon as we arrived and from there we put ourselves in his very capable hands. Bam arranged everything for the trek all our accommodation and a great porter who carried my ruck sack all the way. Bams knowledge was endless and everywhere we stayed was excellent. The trek was amazing the places we saw and the views were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. we didn't just find a great guide in Nepal we made a new friend. We loved our time in Nepal and if were ever lucky enough to go again Bam will be our first call,
