As I am an independent guide & tour operator, I believe that mountain culture should be a way of life & protected at all cost. We maintain high standards when choosing our staff and we pay them according to their skills. The people who work with me are experts in their field with some involved in tourism from their teens. They literally enjoy their jobs.
As it is impossible for me to handle everything alone, I have employees who range from the well-learned and competent office staff to trekking and climbing guides with years of experience on some of the toughest trails in the world. All of our agents, guides, porters and drivers are seasoned veterans that are highly reliable and experienced, with a zeal for working in the travel profession.
Caring for mother earth like we would do for own children…
The tourism boom in Nepal could be a mixed blessing in disguise. It has built up a sizable share of Nepal’s foreign currency revenue but only a few have experienced an improvement in the general standards of living. In fact, for many communities, the flood of visitors has come at a considerable cost.
In numerous areas, trekking groups have littered trails and degraded forests. Against this alarming backdrop, the practice of ecologically friendly-tourism has been gaining increased momentum – both in Nepal and around the World. As an INDEPENDENT TREKKING GUIDE, MY approach to tourism seeks not only to preserve environment and culture of tourist destinations but also to benefit the local population by fostering environmental awareness among both locals and visitors. This is critical to our survival.
By linking tourism to social and economic development, it is possible to preserve natural and cultural heritage of an area through promotion of sustainable tourism. This not only enhances positive experiences of those on holiday but also plays a vital role in raising the living standards of the local residents. ALL OF MY LIFE IN THE TOURISM PROFESSION, I have always strived to promote environmentally friendly tourism and, along with a few close partners, have led the way in organizing highly responsible programs of adventure throughout the prime trekking & climbing regions of our beautiful country Nepal.
