The Himalayas have always held a spiritual reverence for me and my trek to Poon Hill with Bam Magar elevated that experience to such heights that I’m now inspired to start my own business in Sydney- spiritual treks and tours with yoga and meditation and...Bam Magar of course!
I first met Bam when I was on the Everest Base Camp Trek 2 years ago. He was the guide for a family I had befriended on the trek and as we spent much time together, I was drawn to Bam’s vast knowledge and experience of the Khumbu region. Invariably I found myself leaning in to share his expertise and interesting anecdotes with his trekking family- much to the annoyance of my own very young trekking guide at the time, I might add!
So when I decided that my next trek was going to be the Annapurna Panorama, I immediately engaged Bam as my guide. Together with Dhaktipa, our porter we set out from Pokhara for an amazing 5 day adventure. Bam’s skill and professionalism of an expert trekker/guide, together with his easy going sense of humour; caring and friendly personality, was the perfect combination to build an awesome camaraderie in our team. Throw in the beautiful, blooming rhododendrons and other glorious species of flora, set in the picturesque natural landscapes, the magic of the magnificent Annapurna Range will certainly capture your heart and soul. A trekking journey with pocketful of perfect picturesque memories to treasure for a lifetime. Thank you Bam.

I made a trip with a friend guided by Magar Bam.
I can recommend Bam as a professional, who knows mountains very well. He also gets along with people easily.
We aimed to get EBC within 9 days. As I didn't have strong AMS after spending a week in Tibet prior till Labuche. Though on 5000 m the AMS symptoms became too strong. Bam helped me to make a right decision when plans were about to change.
We adjusted the tour for us every day, considering how we feel. Bam's knowledge made the route changes smooth.
Bam is very friendly and always had a story or two.

My parents and I recently went on the Annapurna Circuit Trek with Bam as our guide. He was absolutely fantastic in every way, from his patience and expertise on the mountain to his excellent knowledge about the history of the route to superb and authentic choice of accommodation. We couldn't have asked for a better guide to take us through such a wonderful and beautiful country. Thankyou for such a fantastic experience, we will certainly be coming back!

Unforgettable experience in magical surroundings. Better than in the movie! It was 3 weeks group trekking and the guide would find thin balance to meet everyone's individual needs and requirements considering each and everyone physical strength and trip expectations and desires. And great storyteller above all! You definitely won't come back the same after this adventure.

Trekking to Everest Base Camp via Gokyo lakes gives you one of the most beautiful landscape views on our planet. Bam together with Rajendra made this challenging walk very safe and pleasant. Perfect organisation, sense of humor and supportive hand are all you need to have such enjoyable and memorable trip. I had! Big thanks to Explorer Adventure and its team 🤗

Even now after 2 years I'm still feeling great warmth and I'm so thankful to you, Bam Magar, and your nephew Uttam for being our guides on this steep track to Everest Base camp! You've made this not the easiest journey safe, comfortable and very exciting. Thank you for being so warning and knowledgeable. And indeed thank you for your stories that made Nepal the country I will definitely love to visit some day again!

Bam, my friend!!!
It was a wonderful, sometimes difficult but very interesting journey.
I am very glad that I met you. You are a wonderful person and professional with a capital letters - PROFESSIONAL MAN.
Throughout our climb, we felt in safe hands, in your hands.
You were always ready to come to the rescue, to support a good joke and a good joke to support.
I wish you and your beloved business prosperity, every success and new heights. I am sure that our whole group, and not only ours, join my words and wishes.
Better than mountains can only be mountains that have not yet been (V.S. Vysotsky - Soviet singer).
I will be glad to see you again.........maybe when I get back to Nepal to climb Everest.............
A few words about our porters, you guys are cool - Nepalese rockets !!!!
With great respect !!!

I had a quality Poon Hill trek in Annapurna with my guide Bam Magar! He is down to earth, knowledgeable and very pleasant company for the trip. It's obvious he enjoys what he is doing and that going on adventures in nature is his passion. You will see and learn a lot while trekking with him!
