IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Leader

Kathmandu

Nepali IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide
I'm a pioneer trekker, trekking guide, trekking entrepreneur, mountain rescuer and senior mountaineering instructor. I was the first person to undertake solo mountaineering expeditions in Nepal. I summited Mont Makalu solo in 1982, as a result of which many other mountaineers started going on solo expeditions.
My experience in the trekking industry in Nepal is unmatched. Over the last 30 years, I have organized and conducted countless expeditions, led VVIP trips, including accompanying the Prince and Princess of Spain, and surveyed many new trekking routes. I have received many awards and recognitions. I participated in many trainings, seminars and also conducted many trainings on mountaineering.
I'm the main co-coordinator for the Himalayan Rescue Association of Nepal and the founding member of Nepal National Mountain Guide Association (NNMGA). I'm currently the Vice President of this organization and thanks to our efforts, the Nepal National Mountain Guide Association became a member of the International Union of Mountaineering Associations in 2007. I'm a IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide since 2013.
Please get in touch with me if you wish to come here and discover Nepal, hiking or climbing. I will guide you here with a great pleasure and share with you what I know about my country, my culture, our history...
