Meet Our Local Guides: Nepal

In our series on our Local Guides, today we travel to Nepal!

We have two amazing adventure experiences in Nepal – trekking to Everest Base Camp and travelling through the foothills of the Annapurna region. The unique views of the Himalayas are the star of these two treks and our local guides make sure they don’t go unappreciated.

Meet Kalpana

Kalpana is from Sindupalchowk, a mountain village in central Nepal.

She leads treks through the foothills of the Annapurna region, introducing her group of adventurers to the majesty of the Himalayas.

Always up for a challenge, Kalpana says trekking the foothills of Annapurna has made it her favourite destination.

She also likes to think of herself as a lifelong learner and loves the idea of being “like a chameleon” to her natural surroundings.

For Kalpana, it is the rich geographical and cultural diversity of Nepal has always fascinated her.

But exactly why does she do what she does? Kalpana feels she can inspire others to fall in love with Nepal just as she has.

Meet Gopal

Gopal is from Nepalgunj in Nepal.

It was an interest in mountaineering and trekking that inspired Gopal’s career as an adventure guide, having worked as a trekking guide since 2005.

He has completed some amazing climbs in his lifetime, including some of the highest peaks in Nepal – Island Peak and Mera Peak.

This passion is the reason he continues to successfully guide groups to Everest Base Camp and across the Annapurna region –  so the adventurers in his group can experience the raw beauty of the Himalayas.
