Our first trek in Nepal dates back to May 2011. Together with friends Fausto and Carla, we walked for two weeks from Jomosom to Lo Manthang, and back. We were able to cross a wonderful territory from an environmental point of view, very rich in priceless works of art of Himalayan Buddhism, inhabited by a welcoming and kind people. During this trip, we met the young guide Sherpa Jangbu Lama
, in the pay of an agency in Kathmandu. We immediately became friends. Jangbu
is an intelligent person, always available, very experienced and professional in the work, tireless. For its customers, Jangbu represents safety! In fact, in October of the same year, Piera and Michele returned to Nepal, making a difficult, wonderful and long journey between Basso and Alto Dolpo, reaching up to Shey Gompa and Pokhsumdo lake: unforgettable! In 2012, we walked to the secluded and unspoiled valley of Nar-Phu, with the goal of going to Lake Tilicho and Muktinath, through Thorung La. Unfortunately, due to my unfortunate fall, Piera and I were forced to return by helicopter. in Kathmandu, while our three companions happily completed the program, always following in the footsteps of Jangbu. In 2014, we ventured on the high altitude rough trails of the Tre Passi trekking in the Khumbu region, at the foot of Everest, Nuptse and Lothse. It was an incredible experience, which gave us days of infinite happiness and emotions. It was on that occasion that our friend Sherpa confided to us the project of wanting to set up his own tourist agency, to be able to make himself independent and free in his work. The commitment was not at all easy, indeed! But Jangbu is a courageous and determined boy, he has not let himself be frightened by the many economic and bureaucratic difficulties, stubbornly continuing his desire. In the meantime, he married Yanji and, in January 2015, the small and beautiful Dechen was born from him, all the more reasons to carry out his project without hesitation. Unfortunately, the disastrous earthquake of April-May 2015 brought tourism activities in Nepal to its knees, almost all the trips were canceled, but we didn't lose heart. So, in October-November 2015, obviously led by Jangbu
, we returned to Mustang, to explore the part that we had not been able to know in 2011, namely the one on the left bank of Kali Gandaki, the wildest, the most tormented and lonely. This too - like the others - was a wonderful experience, which still fills our hearts with joy and amazement. In the meantime, Jangbu Lama's dream is finally coming true: he founded and started his agency, christened with the name of Saribung Adventure
. All of us who have had the good fortune to walk and be guided by him are proud and happy. If we can say, we also feel it a bit ours ... Jangbu deserves all luck and satisfaction, and for this reason we invite all those who wish to undertake a trekking or a trip to Nepal, to rely on the seriousness and impeccable competence of Jangbu and his collaborators: will not disappoint you! We sincerely wish every luck and success, to him, to his newborn creature and to all the Nepalese people, who today more than ever need our help, of us who come from every corner of the world to enjoy its beauty and hospitality, in so that we can recover from the terrible damage and mourning suffered, returning to hope for a less precarious and problematic future: courage, friend Jangbu! Courage, Nepalese friends!
