Born in 1967 in the heart of the highest mountains in Namche Bazar, I've found my passion and dedication on mountains hiking, rescues and adventures related tourism.
Starting from the young age of 14 years old, I was already trekking in the high Himalayas. In 1985, I travelled to France and was stationed in the Alps region where I was very much inspired by the French hardcore climbers. It was an evidence for me to become a specialist on mountaineering through various trainings at the Nepal Mountaineering Association.
I'm the 1st senior group of IFMGA (International Federation of Mountain Guide Association)/UIAGM (Union Internationale des Associations de Guides de Montagnes) guide in Nepal.
My passion and determination led me to conduct more courses such as International Mountain Rescue Course, Incentive Mountaineering training and Mid guide course from the Ecole Nationale de Ski et d'Alpinisme (the national skiing and alpinism school) based in Chamonix, France.
I had also the opportunity to attend a very specific training on “Mountains medical rescue” at the dedicated center of IFREMMONT based in France. Since then, I have become a Chief Instructor being able to provide myself several trainings on mountaineering and rescue courses to the Nepalese climbers.
Very much involved in Nepal and France into the mountaineering field, I'm the founder member of Nepal Mountaineering Instructor Association as well as the Current President of Nepal National Mountain Guide Association and the member of Nepal Mountaineering Association, Yves Polivilard Foundation in France.
I've also played a strong role during the rescue mission following the tragic earthquake of April and May 2015 in the most remote regions of Nepal. During this mission, my involvement was highly recognized by the French authorities. As a result, I was awarded a French Foreign Affairs Medal for my acts of courage and dedication made in the service of FRANCE as well as I was reckoned to receive the highest honors of France, the "Légion d"Hônneur in 2016.
Till date, I've demonstrated the flair and confidence of a born leader and is both generous and just. Seeking knowledge incessantly, I have a thirst for everything that is new and unknown.
