I met Dhawa as our guide on Annapurna Base Camp Trek. He talked about Nepal, the local people and areas of Nepal including the Annapurna region and its settlements, and cultural connection with the tradition of going as a Gurkha soldier. This proved to be incredibly important for me, as I don’t think I would have been enlightened with such a beautiful historic, cultural, and ethnic richness. I had no prior experience trekking in snow however Dhawa is very experienced, having hiked all over Nepal and even in Tibet. He led me through the difficult sections and made the overall experience even better as he was able to translate between locals and in rural villages. I would definitely recommend joining Dhawa on any treks and even natural cultural tours.
