Binod Mahat – I am an independent tour operator and guide with many years of experience in organizing and guiding for individual and group itineraries for all of the popular trekking tour destinations in Nepal. Born in the lap of the mid level region of Annapurna Himalayas, in central Nepal I've spent years exploring the remote mountains villages, the country's unique culture and people's lifestyle's of Nepal. When I started in this profession I worked as a porter. Two years later in 1995, I trained with "Pokhara Tourism Training Center (PTTC)" and "His Majesty of Cultural Tourism Civil Aviation (HMCTCV)" in Kathmandu to become a professional government licensed guide. Now I have teamed up with my genuine/expert professionals' friends and I take great pride in my all supporting friends for their caring attitude, knowledge and abilities to explain the rich. Being ecologically sensitive tour operator and guide I specialize in presenting Nepal in a way that works best for my clients.

I have passions in exploring this magical planet we live in and especially in trekking and hiking the Himalayas. The 12 years of experience and knowledge of the Himalayas have prepared me to respond to many difficult situations, should they arise . This short list goes a long way in providing you with a memorable trip.
