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
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.
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.
The Langtang Valley has long been a favorite trek due to its expansive views, interesting Tamang culture, relatively gentle pace and accessibility from Kathmandu. The 2015 earthquake and subsequent landslide had an enormous effect on the region, but aid and reconstruction have recently reopened this valley to trekking again. Not only is it still a beautiful trek, your visit will also provide vital support for local livelihoods.
The Makalu Base Camp trek is a remote route that encompasses some of the best that Nepal has to offer — quiet trails, vibrant terraced farmland, rural cultures, rhododendron forests, rare wildlife and several 8000 meter-plus peaks. For experienced trekkers who relish a challenge, this is a great trek with ample rewards.
The Nar Phu Valley trek is a real Himalayan wilderness experience that is as unforgettable as it is spectacular. Tucked between the more visited Annapurna and Manaslu regions, Nar Phu is a true hidden gem that offers trekkers a rare opportunity to explore unspoiled valleys that feature a mix of raw Himalayan nature and ancient Buddhist culture.
If you’re short on time and looking for a luxury experience, here’s a unique way to see the Everest Region and all the main highlights. You’ll spend your nights in the comfort of Himalayan resorts (often with panoramic views) and your days either trekking and flying through the Everest region by helicopter.
