I have been in Travel and Tourism industry for over 20 years and have extensive knowledge in planning incredible and memorable vacations. Before moving to the USA in 2003, I was a Mountain Guide/ Group Leader for an International Agency called World Expeditions which is located in Sydney. One Summer, I was involved with Colorado Outbound West as a instructor. During my adventure sports career, I have guided clients from Thailand, Tibet, India, Europe Alp, Ben Nevis(Scotland), and most of the hiking trail of the Higher Himalaya. I had basic mountaineering courses from the Nepal Mountaineering Association. While in college, I was on a National league Volleyball team which led me towards adventure sports. I was born in the western region of Nepal, near Pokhara. I grew up surrounded by mountain herding, cattle, goats and water buffalo.
While working in Nepal, I had an opportunity to guide renown Travel Photographer, Mr. Richard I'Anson and German Geoscience Professor, Dr. Erwin Appel, conducting more than half a dozen research trips in the Higher Himalaya.
