Once you’ve been trekking into the Himalayas, you’ll understand why its so incredible. The magic of the place is one thing, and the people are also an incredible part of the experience. Having lead tours into the Indian Himalayas since 1992, I can vouch for the good natured humour and integrity of many of the Himalayan people I have had the good fortune to work with.
I have several good friends, whom I consider to be my family in the mountains. Tenzin is my ‘small brother’ (Chota Bhai) and it is he who I would trust with my life in the mountains in any situation. His care and attention to the welfare of others truly is an inspiration, not just for me, but for everyone who has experienced him on our tours and treks together.
Tenzin is also a caring father and is doing his best to provide for his family and 2 children. Through this project we are helping him to put his daughter and son through school, which is an opportunity that he himself did not have.
