    "Jyamchang was friendly, patient and encouraging. His mountaineering skills and ability left me in no doubt as to safety and my confidence both personally and in my guide."

    "Jyamchang was absolutely fantastic. Felt safe yet motivated the whole time. He encouraged all of us to step outside of our comfort zone, take on challenges and gave us the confidence to do so, always in a calm, methodical fashion. Made our trip fun, enjoyable and immensely informative."
