Gyaljan Lama

I was fortunate to be born in Humla, a remote village in North West Nepal which borders to Tibet. The unique cultures and beautiful landscapes provided me to experience the hidden Himalayas from young age.
I started my career in different NGOs and INGO but later shifted to Bank. Slowly, I discovered that my true passion was travelling. In the last 3 years, I have travelled everywhere around Nepal Himalayas. I am also licensed Trek and Tour Guide from the Nepal government.

How did you get involved in travel?

"My travelling started when I was ten years old; had opportunity to come to Kathmandu for my studies. I liked travelling, I started my career in different NGOs and INGO but later shifted to Bank. Slowly I was bored and started traveling. Later, I discovered that my true passion was travelling. In the last 3 years, I have travelled everywhere around Nepal Himalayas.

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"When I was ten, my father and me had to come to Kathmandu for my studies. Due to the unfavorable weather condition , there was no flight to Simikot we so accompanied with with some people working in NGO and headed for Surkhet. The walking was difficult, long and exhausting but we made it after five days to Kolti. We din't had the chance to fly to Nepaljung even from Kolti (Airport in Bajura district), we tried but they refused to provide. We continued our journey to Surkhet , it took five days. From Surkhet we had bus to Kathmandu, it was my frist time. I just saw some pictures of these automobiles so it was very new and exciting thing to see rolling on the road. It was nice, I was happy. Most memoreble part was it must be around 7 in the morning the road was very muddy the bus was about to fall off the road to the river, Everybody was rushing to the door. I saw my father shouting to me from outside through window, I was surprises, how did he made but I was stock in the middle of people pushing and pulling.
Finally the bus stock at the edge, everybody were out. Later big thing came and pulled to the road I learned it was truck.
As I was child I didn't knew about the accident but was very much surprise How my father manage to go through the window."
