Bhumidev has trekked with client from Israel and America.
Other than the treks listed on sherpafeet, he has taken clients
for the Darcha to Lamayuru trek since 2010, Parang La (Kibber to
Tso Moriri) trek since 2012 and Phirtse La trek. He has been
taking clients for Pin Parvati trek since 2006.
Bhumidev says conservation is a very important thing. He says -
"We have to pay attention to it and it
depends on the guide. We have to save the nature."
"Toilet is one of the main things. People
around Manali, put up their toilet tents next to the river,
this should stop. We need a proper solution - maybe a septic
tank. The Hampta pass trek used
to be so beautiful earlier, it is not so now. People in Leh
are able to control the dirt to an extent,
if they can, why can't we?"
Bhumidev recalls an incident with fondness. He says -
"As a kid, once
two Israeli clients had come. They refused me - the moment
they saw me - as I was small.
I was dissapointed. My
brother said don't be sad you could come along with me. At that
time, the trek used
start from the next village called 'Nagar'. I was the first one
to reach the trek start point and from there
I was the first one to reach every camp site. The clients became
very happy with me. I then became a
helper and went for many treks like Hampta pass. As a
helper, I used to watch the cook, when he used to
learnt to cook. I started enjoying this and took up cooking. I
then went to a treks as a cook.
joined a company and they sent me with foreign clients as a
cook. After doing a couple of treks like
company asked me to become guide. This is how I became a guide."
