Name: Kalu Tamang
Profile: Trekking Guide
Our senior trekking guide Mr. Kalu Tamang started his career as porter in 1984. Soon after he got the opportunity to lead treks in all the trekking areas of Nepal. Mr. Tamang worked almost 26 years under the training of Peter Owens Asian Treks. In 1995 he visited for the first time the USA and since then he spends half of the year travelling in USA and half of the year trekking in Himalayas. Mr. Tamang leads with big enthusiasm camping and mountain bike expeditions all over Nepal and also guides his international friends and customers to India and Tibet.
There are very few people I’d choose as Sirdar/Leader to lead a trek in the Himalayas of Nepal, and SuperKalu is at the top of the list! He’s a great friend to have on a hike or trek, and I’d always trust his planning and leadership and good communications skills (and nice sense of humor) to make the trek come out well. Heck, we biked over Thorong La and down to Jomsom, Tatopaani, Beni and Pokhara with him! He’s the MAN! Best wishes!!
