One of our honest employees Mr. Pokharel has been to entire part of Everest, Manaslu and Annapurna. But because of lack of communication skill he cannot upgrade himself as professional guide, however with his experience he had developed understanding skill with clients. He understands all English but while answering back because of lack of confidents and his shyness he is not good enough to speak although he can understand English language. One of funny example of his communication during trekking is in Everest with our clients from German, as our client ask him about possibility of going ahead if it rains, what to do go or no, And his answer was like “ Tomorrow yes raining no going & no raining yes going”. We think this all because of his experience at least he is able to understand English however he is not good enough to reply but yet still enough to communicate back.
