Lakpa Sherpa

"Start each day with the grateful heart and a good itinerary". Traveling has great educational value and is also a source of great pleasure. I was born and raised in the Himalayan region of Nepal. I've always valued and admired the mountains, rivers, and all the beauties that it offers us.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Trekking, Mountaineering, Heli Tours, Sightseeing Tours, Group departure Treks, Custom-made trips, Treks in Bhutan and Tibet."

How did you get involved in travel?

"Since I was a child I used to go on hiking with my father. He used to take me and my brother with him every weekend. We used to pack our own lunch box in our bag pack and climb up the hills. It was natural for me to increase my passion for traveling. As I got older I started traveling as a Sherpa whenever I got a chance. That's how I got myself in to travel."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"My unique travel experience was the trek to Khopra Danda which I have done with a group of 6 travelers from different countries. Reaching Khopra Danda itself was tough but the highlight of the Khopra Danda Trek was the day we hiked to Kaire Lake, at 4660m. We set off before dawn and returned as the sun was setting. It was a truly humbling experience to climb over 1,000 meters amongst some of the biggest mountains in the world. To reach Kaire Lake, a holy place for both Hindu and Buddhist, was not only exhilarating but also calming.

Out of all the people who stayed at Khopra Lodge, we were the only group to make it, It was a great feeling, everyone was crying including me. "Tears of joy". This was one of the best moments of my life which I have no words to describe."

Best Monsoon Treks in Nepal

While the fall season may have the clearest skies, trekking during the monsoon (from mid-June, through July, August, to early September) has its own advantages. Some treks should be avoided, but for certain regions, it's a great time to visit Nepal: the trails are less crowded, the villages are full of life and the valleys are in bloom.
