From the desk of Team Leader
Mr. Dhakal always carried a belief that the mountains, the culture and the hospitality had the potential to transform his life. Born in a remote village, surrounded by lush forest and an endless chain of hills, he says I was always amazed by the beauty of Nepal. He further states that his attachment to nature inspired him to start his career as a trekking Sherpa, which led him to many exotic places. After years of experience, he mentions that I finally had the opportunity to become a guide, using my knowledge and passion to venture deep into the Himalayas. Till date without a doubt exploring the Himalayas, rediscovering the country on each trip is just like another day.
Mission Nepal was, and is an idea that involved sharing the world of passion for travelling through the wilderness, and the mountains with other adventure followers. Slowly but steadily this passion has created a lifetime worth of memories and an incredible sense of accomplishment as i look back.
