 1  Nava Raj Dahal Nepal Environmental Treks and Expedition
We had a splendid 6 days trek to Poonhill to view the magnificent sunrise. The trek was well organized and our guide, Raj, chose the best guest house for each night. He is very attentive to small details and gives us good advice to ensure our well beings. Raj is joyful and humorous and kept we entertain throughout ... view more the trip. Ratna our porter is also very good and told us plenty of things. We had enjoyed our trip very much and will recommend your esteemed company to our friends.

 2  Karen and Steve Leighty Great experience
Our experience with Pem Sherpa was in Nepal in September 2008. Our group of 24 was made up of five dentists, a physician, three nurses, plus other professionals who went to a remote village called Chyangba to perform medical /dental/vision mission along with building and supporting the village school. Some in our ... view more group were experienced campers, hikers, and explorers. While we being 50-something (in good shape), have limited hiking and absolutely no camping experience at all.
Pem is very articulate and sensitive when dealing with his clients. He makes use of the internet and cell phone technology to communicate in a modern fashion. His English skills are superior and he was able to guide us through the unfamiliar airport and ground transportation the entire trip through Nepal. Pem is very organized, efficient, and in control. He has the ability to meet the individual wants and needs of our group, while providing leadership for the porters, and organizing and addressing the needs of the village. He and his workers work ‘behind the scenes’ to prepare campsites in advance of our group. Direction and assistance was given as needed to those of us who are tender footed, while allowing space to those with more advanced skills.

It is easy to recommend Pem Sherpa with no reservation. We had a great experience, and Pem is the only one we would trust to organize and conduct any trip/hike/climbing adventure in the Nepal region.Karen and Steve Leighty.

 3  Mike Ferguson I guarantee you will have a fantastic experience.
I have made two trekking trips to Nepal. On my last trip to the Everest Region I had a wonderful time with M20587. The staff was pleasant and courteous and took great care of all the trekkers. They made sure we stayed in comfortable guest houses and ate good food. They were knowledgeable about the history and ... view more culture and all had a good sense of humor. Sign on with M20587.

 4  Terry & Robin Prechter We had the very good fortune to have Pem Dorje Sherpa as our trip planer
My wife, Robin and I were members of a Rotary International medical/dental. Project in rural Nepal during the last of the monsoon season in 2008. We had the very good fortune to have Pem Dorje Sherpa and his company organizing and equip our project. From flight arrangements, visas and exchange rates to tents, ... view more sleeping bags and rain gear this company performed well beyond our expectations. Pem proved to be every bit as responsible and determined to see that each in our party of 22 was comfortable and safe. We had a day and a half hike into the village and treated several hundred
villagers during our stay, many of whom had traveled days to receive care. Our trip was a huge success and would not have been possible without the oversight of M20587.

Following the Rotary International project, six of us left to trek in Nepal's Langtang National Park. The ten-day trek of over a hundred miles was an awe inspiring and memorable experience and once again we had them arrange our equipment, porters and evenings in beautiful Teahouses along the way. This was a photo trip beyond compare. We highly recommend them for anyone looking to enjoy a lifetime experience in Nepal.

 5  Barry Turner Highly recommended!
I can't quite figure out how to phrase my appreciation for the expertise of Pem Sherpa and his crew for supporting our September-October 2008 Rotary International medical /dental project and subsequent trekking and climbing expeditions. If I tell the literal truth it will sound like too much, but the reality ... view more is that our volunteer group of 21 California volunteers (mostly Rotarians) had complicated arrivals, departures, tour needs, etc.). We had 2000+ pounds of medical and dental equipment and supplies that had to be transported to the remote Chyangba work-site. Following the work project, Pem Sherpa orchestrated our successful climb of Lobuche Peak (20,070'). He followed the perfect altitude acclimatization profiles in getting us to the summit. His team provided a "fixed rope" route for most of the summit climb day, giving climbers the same technical challenge for climbing the mountain while increasing the safety if any climber were to fall. His attention to detail and the devotion of his climbing guides were second to none I have ever experienced in my many guided climbs. I would highly recommend Pem Sherpa and wish him and his staff good luck.

The first time I met Pem Dorjee Sherpa, in Kathmandu, I realized it was a great professional providing he has done for my group of 20 French Physicians (working about Medical Anthropology) across Tibet respected at the best my requirements.

 7  Gerry Case Thanks very much again for such a memorable experience
Pem, I wanted to take a moment to tell you that the month that I spent with you and Sherpa Adventure Int’l in Nepal this past month will always be one of the most memorable months in my life.

I was very impressed with the degree of organization that you and your company brought to the adventure both in ... view more Chyangba and on the trek to Lobuche Peak (and our subsequent opportunity to look down 1500 feet upon Base Camp for Mt. Everest).

It seemed to me that you were constantly being forced to juggle the adventure to comply with requirements of the weather (4 rain days in a row was unusual) and at no time did it seem like you were in less than 100% control of every element of the trek (including food, lodging, personnel, and the idiosyncrasies of your patrons).

Thanks very much again for such a memorable experience. I would recommend you and your company to ANY one who might wish for an opportunity to visit Nepal or any of the other destinations and trips that you offer. Please feel free to have them contact me if I may be of further assistance.
Warmest regards!

 10  Royal Robbins Continental Divide Trail
This is a letter of recommendation for my friend, Pem Dorjee Sherpa. I had the pleasure last year of hiking with Dorjee on the Continental Divide Trail in July, 2007 and of climbing with him in October of that same year on the 1,000-foot high Third Flatiron near Boulder, Colorado. I was very impressed by the ... view more mountain knowledge and expertise of this man who has spent so much time climbing high and serious mountains around the world. He clearly is a reliable person who can be trusted with the well-being of anyone placed in his care.
Pem Dorjee Sherpa is a good man to have in this country as he will add value to any enterprise in which he is involved. I heartily recommend him.

 11  Larry Sage Trekking in Nepal
I have had the opportunity to both accompany Pem Sherpa as a guided client, and subsequently work with Pem as a guide. In 2008, I was a part of a public health group that worked in Pem’s village in Nepal. Subsequent to our work, a few of us were guided by Pem and his qualified team of climbing Sherpas and ... view more porters on a trek into the Everest region where we successfully summited Lobouche East Peak. I was continually impressed by Pem’s organization, skill and expertise. For the past 10 years, I have guided back-country hiking trips in California and Utah. After trekking with Pem in Nepal, I invited him to guide with me here in the US and have had the privilege of working with him on several occasions. I continue to be impressed with his skills and his easy and friendly manner with our adventuring guests. I highly recommend Pem as a trustworthy and skilled trekking and climbing guide. I look forward to trekking, climbing and working more with Pem in the future.

 12  Stephen Scott-Fawcett Best Guide for Himalayan region.
For the past 10 years I have been trekking and climbing in the Himalayan region. I have enjoyed every single trip and the have marveled at the agility of the porters and appreciated the expertise of my Sherpa guides. However, my recent trek (a return to Everest) with Pem Dorjee Sherpa and his team exceeded all my ... view more expectations and previous experiences. Quite simply, Pem is a first-class guide with excellent mountain knowledge. Just as impressive are his ‘people skills’ – nothing is too much trouble for him. He will accommodate the whims and ambitions of anyone, it seems. With Pem and his team you are in safe hands and when you travel high and remote THAT is what matters most. From now on the idea of trekking without Pem Dorjee Sherpa is unthinkable.

 13  Stephen Forte Best Guiding Company.
I met Pem Dorjee Sherpa when I was planning a trek to Everest Base Camp for 10 of my friends. Our experience was tailored to our needs and we were very happy. Once in Nepal, Pem and his team were attentive and caring, plus a lot of fun. As the days passed on the trek, I dare say, we were spoiled, the whole way! I ... view more recommend Pem his company to anyone who wants to travel to Nepal or the nearby region.
