I have been on three trekking trips with Bam and he is an excellent guide and friend. He provided sound advice and showed a good understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of each member in the group. He is extremely resourceful and helps to overcome difficulties with cheerfulness and equanimity, a very important quality when one is on the mountains! The three trips- Annapurna Base Camp, Upper Mustang and Gokyo Lakes- were memorable and I could not recommend Bam highly enough. It makes a huge difference to know that one's trek will be in good hands and it has allowed me to enjoy the fantastic scenery and experience.
