When I was young, my family ran a small tea shop in a village called Kyongma, which fell en route to Mount Everest. We often witnessed western foreigners trekking in the Himalayan region carrying cameras, well-equipped trekking gear, hats, sunglasses, and big backpacks filled with essentials. Watching these tourists visit my country, fueled my curiosity about their comfortable style of travel. It was a gradual realization that education was a key component of having access to travel with convenience. I spent my childhood attending school during the weekdays and working as an assistant guide, earning pocket money during holidays. With limited access to education in the Khumbu area, I migrated to Kathmandu to pursue higher education. Prioritizing academics and mountaineering work in parallel, I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism and English Literature, followed by a Master's Degree in Sociology from Tribhuvan University in 1990.
I have traveled extensively in Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan, and India to research mountain tourism, and I noted that culture is a big part of the business. Soon after, I traveled to several countries in Europe, North America, Middle East, and Asia to learn about the cultures found in these continents first hand and to better understand the needs of our clients. With prior experience in trekking and months of tourism research, I established Himalayan Sherpa Adventure Pvt Ltd in the autumn of 1992. Over the years, we have expanded our operations from solely trekking to include expeditions, peak climbing, sightseeing, mountain biking, rafting, jungle safari, excursions, and bookings for hotels and flights in Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan, India, and Pakistan. With the combined knowledge and expertise of my staff and I, we have been fortunate enough to emerge as one of the most prominent companies in the trekking industry of Nepal. Operated by a group of people from the foothills of Mt. Everest, all of our guides and leaders have years of trekking and climbing experience. Hence, we take great pleasure and pride in showing you our 'home'– the wonderful and adventurous land of the Himalayas.
Our latest development has aimed to establish an exclusive platform of services in the tourism industry. We have further extended our business from travel and trekking to comfort hotels and the aviation sector in Nepal. Our premier hotels include Sherpa Shangrila Resort in Phakding (2,610 m) and Kongde Hotel in Kongde (6,200 m), along with a helicopter company, Heli Everest.
