Your Guide

I am born and brought up in Kathmandu but I always Consider Mountains as my second home. I really cherish myself working as a Trekking guide. It allows me an opportunity to showcase the real highlights of my beautiful country to all my fellow trekkers or travellers.

I am young, energetic, hard working and very easy to get along with. In regards to my trekking experience, I have spent a large part of my life exploring the trails of the Himalayas. I have lead trekking expeditions to Everest Base Camp, throughout the Annapurna Ranges, and to the heights of LangTang, Muktinath, Manaslu and Gosaikunda, as well as other mountain trails in the north western Himalayas.

I find Nature as my Inspiration and Mountains always keeps me Motivated.

Overview

Dolpo region is situated between the Tibetan plateau and the Dhaulagiri ranges. The entire district was closed to trekkers until 1989 when the southern part of Dolpo was opened to organized trekking groups. Our trekking adventure begins with tours of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu. We then fly to Nepalgunj and then to Juphal from where we begin our trek in the Dolpo region which was made famous by Peter Matthiessen’s book – The Snow Leopard. Nepal’s first English subtitled movie on Dolpo, The Caravan, was also a huge success and was also nominated for the Oscar Award in the best foreign language film category. On our 28-day trek we pass through interesting villages, trekking routes and meet fascinating people. We also cross a few high Himalayan passes and enjoy the vast and tranquil beauty of Phoksundo Lake. From Shey Gompa, we follow the ancient Trans Himalayan Trade route and return back to Jhuphal as our trek ends. The trek indeed takes us into the wild west of Nepal.
