About Trek Around Nepal

On the Way to Everest

Hello!  My name is Narayan (Nar-rhine)

Narayan Bhandari

I have been a lifelong trekking guide here in Nepal and Trek Around Nepal is my company.

I started my trekking career as a porter to support my schooling. I worked for over a year in a government office job, but to be honest, I loved the outdoors too much to stay behind a desk. I moved to Pokhara and obtained my official trekking license with an A grade.

My first guided trek was on March 15th 1998 and since then I have worked my way up in the trekking business. It’s allowed me to officially register Trek Around Nepal with TAAN as my business where my wife now also works.

Making your trek a lifetime highlight is a priority for me. Together we can sit down and discuss what you want from your trek. I will be honest with you as we work together to create the best trek you could possibly want.

This site has been designed primarily to introduce you to what I can can offer you with my services as a guide in Nepal.

I have also included many useful articles about Nepal, trekking in Nepal and how to get around this great country.

I hope you will enjoy your time here,


Hello! My name is Nawaraj Bhandari and I am the Chief Operating Officer at Trek Around Nepal. I am also the lead trekking guide for Upper Mustang and our Annapurna Region treks. Nawaraj Bhandari from Trek Around Nepal-400

I started work at Trek Around Nepal as a porter and worked my way up to being a fully qualified and licensed trekking guide. I’m a graduate in physics and handle the day to day operating logistics for Trek Around Nepal’s local guides. If you contact us, it will me who will assign the best trekking guide to match your trek.

I only choose guides and porters that are experienced in the region you are going. This is something I enjoy researching and organising as I also take care to ensure the guide is matched well with our clients needs. It’s a challenging but rewarding experience as our client feedback highlights how much they’ve enjoyed trekking with us.

My favorite treks to take our clients on are the Upper Mustang treks and Annapurna Treks due to the amazingly diverse scenery and fantastic people from those areas. Feel free to email us with any questions you may have!
