Guide Bio

I have been involved with the tourism industry since over decade and have been responsible for organizing many important hiking treks to the Himalayan region of Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan.

Mr. Dhamala also has wide ranging experience in arranging expeditions to many major Himalayan peaks with the support of national and international mountaineering teams. His vast experience combined with his entrepreneurial skills and academic background has resulted in the establishment of this trekking agency that has rapidly become a name to reckon with in Nepal’s trekking. Mr. Dhamala is a thorough professional and started his career as a Mountain porter to trekking guide, then senior Tour/Trek Leader and till this point has explored each and every corner of the south East Asian (Nepal/Tibet/Bhutan/India) himalayan range.

Raj Kumar Dhamala (Raj), Managing Director was born in the Sankosh VDC of Dhading District. Sankosh is a remote village in the south-east side of the Manaslu and Ganesh Himal range. He developed fondness to the mountains while growing with it. His childhood was not very pleasant after losing his mother in early days. He completed primary school in his village and moved to Kathmandu as a domestic helper and continued with studies. After a long hard life of 7 years he completed his high school and entered in the tourism Business at the age of 16 as a porter in 1998. Raj then started working for different companies as porter and later was promoted to a trekking guide and then to a trek leader. He took his license from Nepal Academy of Tourism and Hospitality Management (NATHM) in 2003. Working in Nepalese trekking industry was hard for him as everyone experiences, as lot of guides and porters don’t get timely paid and have very less to survive on. The scenario was same in some of the big companies he worked for. After being unpaid and surrounded with all kinds of trouble he decided to leave for Middle East for work but Destiny had something else for him and he was called for a trekking with a Czech group as they wanted him to accompany them for their trip in Dolpo. It was their second trip in Nepal and the first trip they did with him was pretty successful. After hearing the story about Raj, the Czech team suggests him to quit the plans to go abroad and then start a company on his own so that other guides and porter he would employ won’t have to face the same problems he faced. With the motivation of the Czech group, especially Mr. Jiri Student who is also the Adviser and the God Father of the company and support from the previous guest from different parts of the world Raj started Adventure Mission Nepal as a small trekking agency in Thamel in 2009. I the course of operation Raj Teamed up with some young and enthusiastic IT and Tourism professionals and since then AMN have served people from all over the world from trekkers to soft adventure lovers and climbers. AMN serves 100 of trekkers every year and provides direct employment to around 50 Guides, porters, office staffs and supports tea houses in the trekking trail contributing them by providing good business. AMN is still growing and the area of operation has been expanded to India, Bhutan, and Tibet. From 2014 the company has also started expedition trips and outbound tours to Malaysia, Singapore, Myanmar, Srilanka, Thailand and Kerala in Southern India.
