Having been born in the capital city, Kathmandu, I got everything with an ease for which I was very grateful but the more beautiful scenes and landscape views which the countryside offers was a dream for me.
Although there are many places to visit for wonderful hikes around Kathmandu valley, there are still more places within Nepal to explore. And my love towards traveling created a zeal to do something to show the beautiful side of my nation to the worldwide travel lovers. And, thus, found my way on serving the travel lovers as a trip planner.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"From the start of my career as a travel planner, I have been helping my clients with trekking and tours in Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. Besides this, I also do specialize in Chitwan safari trips which is the only most popular trip for experiencing Jungle Safari in Nepal."
How did you get involved in travel?
"With a concept and vision of seeing a prosperous Nepal since early childhood, I always thought of the aspects which can uplift Nepal in a long run. And the idea got generated to pave a path to my career. I always knew that only two most important aspects can help Nepal in gaining prosperity viz. Hydropower and Tourism.
Initially, I was planning to get involved in Hotel industry with my Hotel Management background but got ultimately ended up as a trip planner for Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. It's been just 7 years now I placed my first footstep in the trip planning and trek arrangement field and have been designated as Administrative Manager at Nepal Myths & Mountain Trails since 2011."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"No one can forget his/her first traveling, may it be a short hike or lengthy trek or first flight. I too started my traveling with a short hike around Kathmandu valley with my school friends which was a unique experience for me. No matter how much I travel, I can never forget my first experience in trekking."
Featured trips & expertise
Although small in land area, Nepal is an extremely diverse country in terms of culture and landscape. In seven days you can scratch the surface, see many beautiful sights and have a lot of fun. Ancient culture in Kathmandu, trekking trails through the forests and hills, white-water rafting on the Trisuli River, wildlife spotting in Chitwan National Park, beautiful lake and mountain views in Pokhara — you may not be able to do it all in a week, but you can have a go!
Although geographically compact, Nepal's mountainous terrain and bumpy roads make it feel like a much bigger country than it is. Add diverse cultures, terrain, and ecosystems to the mix and you could easily spend several weeks exploring the picturesque Himalayan nation. However, in as little as three days you can enjoy some of Nepal's highlights. To complete one of Nepal's famous treks you typically need about 2 weeks.
Nepal is mountains, jungles, rivers, and ancient culture. This diversity means that you could spend a lifetime exploring the small Himalayan nation, but if you only have five days, you can get a taste for some of its best sites and experiences. From white-water rafting to chilling out beside a lake, here are some ideas for where to go and what to do with five days in Nepal.
One of Nepal’s most rewarding treks, Mt. Kanchenjunga lies on the eastern border of Nepal and is perfect for those adventurous enough — and who have the time — to travel here. Previously camping only, there are now more affordable teahouse routes that take you past stunning Himalayan vistas, ancient forests, prime wildlife habitat, and into the heart of traditional cultures and communities.
On this moderate seven-day trek just North of Kathmandu Valley in Nepal, get up close with the Tamang people while trekking amid green valleys and snow-capped mountains. The Tamang Heritage trail has the added benefit of providing sustainable economic benefit to the local community.
Mera Peak is the highest trekking peak in Nepal, and an ascent of the 6,476 m./21,246 ft. mountain is just one of the highlights of this amazing expedition: trek and camp through some truly wild and remote valleys and enjoy the colors of native Rhododendron forests and other spectacular mountain scenery.

Hi Tashi and Prajwol,
Sorry I've taken so long to review but I was thinking it over and didn't want to write exactly how I was feeling at the time. I'm going to just give a breakdown of my experiences on the trip you planned for me.
Day 1- the touring day.
The guide was very knowledgeable and he made the whole experience quite pleasant for my friend and me. We do recommend using him in the future. However, there were two situations where we felt VERY uncomfortable. I had been feeling off... read more
Ghandruk trek - scenic 3-4 day trek through the annapurna foothills, Nepal - May 4 - May 7, 2018
Organizing and booking through Kimkim was easy and fast. I only contacted them online 5days before my travel and it was still possible to have an amazing 4day trip on the Gandruk trek! The journey was customized to my needs and I had a wonderful guide and porter. I just had to follow them and everything was taken care of. I had a lot of time to enjoy the mountains and the beautiful villages and did not have to worry about anything. Just perfect! The tea houses we stayed in were simple, but cosy and there was all I needed. Honestly a truly amazing experience and good value for money!
