Upendra Sunuwar is a talented runner who loves the sport Roger Henke (of Trail Running Nepal) explains:
I’ve run with Upendra many times during weekends in Kathmandu and on a couple of multi-day trips elsewhere in the country. Upendra is a RUNNER. He likes running, he lives for running, he loves being on trails. Sure, he needs an income and guiding other runners is a way of earning money, but with him you’re sure to be on the trail with someone who loves the sport. And, indeed, a very very strong one, although he is comfortable with any level of runner – running with me being the best possible proof of that :-)
Upendra’s English is far from fluent, but his understanding is good communication is generally not a problem. His rates are highly affordable at approximately US$30 per day excluding transportation, including nominal food and accommodation costs. Feel free to tip too!
If you are interested in hiring Upendra to guide your running or fastpacking adventure, send us an email or find him on Facebook.
