Sangita Bajracharya

I feel blessed to born in Kathmandu- the city of temples. From my childhood, I wanted to visit new places and that’s what I am doing now visiting new places whenever I get free time. I always select the place which we could take people for holiday. At the same time, I try to meet and talk with locals so this help to know about their lifestyle and at the same time if there is a chance I could support by generating any job opportunities for them. I always try to organize local trips that give the travelers unique opportunity to experience the authentic Nepali culture as well as have a close glance at the local lifestyle and people.

To interact with the people from all around the world has always been my passion. To be tourism entrepreneur of Nepal, has create that bridge where I can help people to create great travel memories to cherish for a lifetime.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"We are specialized in all kinds of tours and treks around Nepal. We have varieties of customized trip as per the location:

Kathmandu- melting pot. Full of culture and heritages (nature and cultural). We are specialized in Festival tours where traveler can observe / participate in the festival with local host family. As we have lots of family members who are in handicraft business: we also lead trips where people could meet all these craftsman from Gem to gold. Also we have many local trips such as organic farm tour where traveler can get closer to farming techniques in Nepal and involve themselves in this unique tour.
Mountain: we are promoting off the beaten treks.

Spiritual focused trips: we also promoting trips where travelers to go and learn or enjoy mind & body healing or massage and yoga and meditation."

How did you get involved in travel?

"I was born and grown up in Ason, old market of Kathmandu. I use to see and meet lots of travelers while I am going to school or walking around my home which I found really interesting and now and then I use to talk with them. Most of them are for nature, people and culture (that’s my tag line for agency also). While as we all know Nepal is rich in nature and as I am Newar (major ethnic group of Kathmandu), we are rich in terms of culture. So certainly there are so much to share and learn with the travel industry. In another hand , I always had dream to connect with people from around the world that will give me opportunity to share my ideas and experiences as well as I love talking and listening to travels stories.That is another reason to get involved deeply in travel field. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"In 2015 I went to Singapore and Malaysia for holiday and during the trip, our friends (who have traveled with us before) were so generous that they took us around for tour which made my trip much easy and got to explore best places around . This eye opening experience made me felt exactly how travelers will feel when they travel with us. "

It was a treat to have the mountains to ourselves and be able to get into a trekking rhythm without others around and be able to absorb the true beauty and peaceful mountain landscape of Nepal.

We learnt a lot about life in Nepal from Rabin and Iswar even some Nepalese music. They helped us feel welcome at the tea houses and we enjoyed dal Bhat, Thukpa and momos daily - the spices were so good. Nothing was a problem

Sangita was absolutely brilliant in arranging for us to have a jeep driver so we could complete our experience. Our guide, Mitra, was helpful, caring, accommodating, and wonderful.

We had a major problem when we arrived for our return flight to Kathmandu and found that the Pokhara airport was closed. We called Sangita for help and she quickly arranged for a driver (Nabin) who picked us up at the airport and drove the 200 kilometers to Kathmandu in record time to get us to the airport for our international flight home. Sangita also arranged for the luggage we had left in storage at our hotel in Kathmandu to be picked up and to meet us at the airport. Thanks to her impeccable serve, we made our international flights.

The service was exemplary, above and beyond anything we could have imagined. Thank you

But unfortunately, my trek partner also fell ill and we had to turn our trek into a jeep excussion to the tea houses we had planned to trek to. Sangita made it happen. On the last day when we were to fly from Pokhara to Kathmandu, our flight was cancelled (due to weather). Sangita arranged for us to get a jeep to Kathmandu so we could make our international flight. She found us a private jeep with a fantastic driver. 20 minutes later, we were on the road...our only hope to make our flight. On the way, via cell phone comms back and forth, she helped us collect our left luggage from our previous hotel and deliver it to us at the airport. Without all this coordination on Sangita's part, we might still be in Nepal!! She is simply awesome and a miracle worker.

The included breakfast was nice and filling and the rooms were cozy and relatively comfortable. The location is what really made this work for my family and I. Close enough to all the action but off the path enough that we couldn't really hear the sounds of the city.

These were perfect. The beds weren't the most comfy but having a bed and warm blanket at the end of a day of trekking was fantastic. The shared bathroom was better than expected and most had an option of toilet-type. The food at all of them was amazing! It took a long time to get the food (because they were literally making it from scratch!...which is awesome) so bring some games or a book or something. The walls are thin and it's basically a hostel so earplugs might be helpful for some. In my opinion, though, this is the way to see Nepal!

We were not mentally prepared for it. We had trained and stuff but on this day you wake up EARLY (4:30a) to summit by sunrise (which is worth it) but after you summit you go back down for breakfast, then back up for lunch, and then waaaaaaay back down for Junbesi. Our legs were toast by the end of this day. Junbesi is a great little town and the accommodations were really nice. I'm not sure there's a way to shorten this leg because of how remote you are at this point in the trail so just be prepared.

I cannot say enough about this amazing place. It was like stepping into a different world. At once simple and luxurious, it was the perfect place to stay when we began and ended our time in Nepal. The staff are generous, helpful, kind, and so very friendly. The food/meals were delicious. The architecture was mesmerizing and you could spend hours studying the carved wood and intricate details of the brick and wood rooms. Every nook and cranny of this place has character. DO NOT MISS this hotel.

This hotel was really fun but seemed a little dated for the price. Though after nearly 12 days of hiking, the room and especially the shower was a real luxury. The views were beautiful and the dining experience was wonderful because of the service and the super cool architecture (and fireplace!) and use of the mountainside as part of the building.

This was my favorite day of the hike. Please do not pass it up!! Hike all the way to the top. Your guide will tell you about halfway up that the views are not all that different at the top, and that's mostly true, but they are actually different in that the top gives you a 360 view. If you are physically able to hike to the top, do it!
