Adventure has been my passion since I was a young child. I was born and raised in a small village near the base of Mount Everest. I followed my dream of becoming an expert expedition guide beginning in 1981 by working with local operators. I completed the trekking guide course under the Ministry of Tourism and Hotel Management at the Tourism Training Center in 1983. Five years later, I also completed the Mountain Climbing course under the certification from the Nepal Mountaineering Association.
After several years of gaining trekking experience with different companies, I was ready to become a tour operator and start my own company. Since 1993, I have been fortunate to work with professional trekking, expedition and tour guides. I now offer expeditions within Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan and India.
My experience has allowed me to be an Executive member and Executive Secretary for the Trekking Agent Association of Nepal in past years. I believe with my success it is important to give back to the community. It is also important to help up and coming young guides and expedition teams.
Although my work is my dream, I have another successful passion, music. I have received several nominations and have won numerous awards for Best Folk Song with the annual Tuborg Stage Image Awards. I began my music career at a later age than most but to date have released eight albums.
