Singalila National Park – Trekking with Nabin Sharma of Darjeeling

We had 5 days and 4 nights trekking in Nepal and West Bengal with wonderful views of the Himalayas. To see Everest and Kanchenjunga at sunrise from where we did - something to savor. We did this in November of 2012. We were lucky to have splendid weather. Being November, it started cooling off at night and we were glad for the down sleeping bags and jackets TrekMate provided us. Nabin, our guide, had good command of the English language which helped us learn about the area. Otherwise, he speaks fluent Hindi and Nepalese. Nabin was obviously seasoned with several years guiding under his belt and knew when and where to be of help - a 6th sense perhaps. Great sense of humor, too. We appreciated Kumar, our porter, who lightened our load and allowed us to totally enjoy the surrounds which were incredibly beautiful. This was a tea house trek with stops along the way for great food made by people in their own homes. Each night offered different, unique, and fun accommodation in guest houses along the way. If I was to rate this experience on a scale of 1-5, 5 being the best, it gets a 5+. ~Mary P.S. I surprised Nabin. He didn't know I was videoing him with my phone until i was done and told him. I could have done better on the sound but you'll get the idea. Concentrate on the beauty! :-) P.P.S Are we connected on LinkedIn? http://linkedin.com/in/relomary
