Shiva is an amazing guy and an awesome guide! The job to me was essencially go with him on the tours around Kathmandu, taking pictures and feed his social medias. Was a great experience and I've learned A LOT about nepali traditions, religions, politics and history! Staying with his lovely family and live as a local was also a great life experience. His son is very polite and his wife cooks such a great food and did everything to please me despite my food restrictions: no rice to me, a BIG issue in Asia! Thank you, Shiva and family, for such an welcoming stay.

Great Experience! Shiva is a kind and warm person and his family is really nice, they made me feel like home and I had the chance to experience Nepal in a "local way" they introduced me different Nepali meals and all were pretty good and tasty, his wife is an amazing cook so I enjoyed every meal. I was helping Shiva taking photos during the walking tour to promote his job so I learned a lot about Nepal. Shiva has an amazing knowledge about the Nepali history and he take his time to explain everything in detail. Thank you Shiva for everything I really enjoyed this experience!

My almost two months in Nepal were outstanding! Shiva and his family were spectacularly polite, generous and considerate. I could not recommend this experience more. :)
Living in real Kathmandu, outside of the tourist district will give you a completely fresh and rarely seen perspective of life in Nepal. Also, Shiva's walking tour is one of a kind in the city, and will familiarize you with the surroundings very quickly.
Shiva is such a wonderful guy. Inspired and mindful. Talk with him as much as possible and soak in his knowledge, experiences and positive attitude.

Staying with Shiva and working for Himakala Adventures has truly been a learning experience for me. I got to learn a lot more than I could have had I travelled by myself. The work helped me learn more about Nepal in general and its culture, traditions, history in general. He has a lovely family, very welcoming. They went out of their way to make me feel at home. Would definitely recommend if you want to live with locals who are welcoming and loving and a host who has abundant knowledge about his country. I was lucky enough to visit his village in Gorkha which was an experience I will treasure.

I had the absolute best time with Shiva and his family :) We trekked every day and laughed so many times. As far as the office work : He gave me creative control and flexibility to work to my strengths. Super simple and incredibly REWARDING. He was so kind and grateful for my efforts. Made me feel truly appreciated and at home. His wife makes excellent curry! If you work with him, please give him your best - he's absolutely worth it. And in turn, he'll show you a FUN time and welcome you into his family. So glad to have made a new friend
