    International Mountain Guide

    When I was a child, I was always roaming around and discovering new areas in my village which often got me into trouble as I was out of my home most of the time. I remember, how I pursuaded my friends into my interest and extended my steps further outside the village with their great company. Needless to say, I was often the leader of any new plans of travelling among my friends. That’s how I developed my love for travelling. The further I explored, I was left wanting for even more.

    Today, I am an International Mountain Guide (Mountain Guide). I was able to go from Introductory Rock Climbing to Level IV of Rock Climbing. then it was followed by Ice climbing which I excell upto level III. I went on a lot of trainings from Ice Climbing, Martial Art, Advance Mountaineering, Basic First Aid and Hill walking, navigation course, Ski level-I in Nepal and Ski level-II in France and Switzerland, Heli Marshall and so forth. I have been associated with  Nepal Nomad since the very beginning and from that moment I have never looked back to that part of my life which had the absence of adventure.

I planted the seed of travelling interest by myself ever since I was a little boy and then i let it grow along with the help of my brother who was equally fond of the same interest.

From Mera Peak, it was tough but beautiful place and then Ama Dablam and to the Everest South Pole (the final place). Since, I can’t decide on only one, I loved ski training to Switzerland and France as this was my first international trip.
