I have been involved in the tourism field for 18 years now.

How did you get involved in travel?
"I got involved in travel when I was very young. My dad, who has been working in this field for over 40 years used to take me on different treks. The people, the places, the food and their culture always excited me. I started as a trekking officer in 2000, and my roles were limited to communicating with the clients on daily basis and included more of operational work that gave me the idea on how the treks were organized. I also started guiding treks that broadened my knowledge of the field. Over the years, working in different companies and understanding the range of clientele I have learnt to treat each of them differently. Thus, I try to understand the needs of the clients and design products after knowing what they are looking for. After completing my Masters in Tourism, I have been involved full time as Product Manager in Thamserku Trekking. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"In March 2015, when the Turkish Airlines flight skidded after overshooting a runway amid dense fog in Nepal, forcing staff to evacuate the plane, which was carrying 224 passengers, all international flights were canceled for more than a week. I was working in a different company then and we had more than 80 people stranded in Kathmandu. I and my team played a crucial role in making sure each passenger got out of Kathmandu safely. One experience I will always remember. "
