I was born in 1983 in Khembalung which stands at an elevation of 2500m from sea level and it is situated in eastern part of Nepal with the air distance of about 9 km, to the direction of NWW from the worldâ€™s fifth highest Mt Makalu. Khembalung is historically very spiritual and sacred regions for the Buddhism, so people here practice retreats and meditations!
Since my childhood the snow and mountains have been the great play ground for me in my village. As of my interest to be a mountaineer, I have started working as porter since my age of 13 years. I worked many years with my father and learnt so much about mountains, geography, history and cultures of Nepal and outside Nepal from him.
At my age of 14, I've stood on the summit of Mount Mera Peak for the first time and that was the golden gate for me to enter to the profession of mountaineering.Â After the successful summit of Mera, I continued working and gaining experiences on the mountains. Eventually at my age of 19 years I got the opportunity to work on Mount Everest and other high altitude expeditions around the globe.
After following mountaineering training from 2003, I was able to complete the mountain guide course in 2011.
Presently I m working as a freelance mountain guide.Â And I have been guiding in Nepal, Tibet and South America. When I m not guiding I work as an operation manager for Audan Trekking Nepal based Swiss company in co-operation with Swiss family.
Guiding experience in Himalaya:
Mount Everest 10 summits, Cho oyu, Amadablam, and over 17 trekking peaks above 6000m in Himalaya.
Guiding Experience in South America
