The best part of any outdoor activities done in wilderness is getting the rare opportunity to get connected with the people who are settled in remote valleys or distant outcrops. Though I was born and brought up in mountains, Mountaineering has paved me the road to mingle with wider Himalayan population and gain wider experiences.
I have witnessed the life of deprivation and needs in villages. So, though it sounds like a cliché, I have always wanted to give back to the community what I have gained from Mountaineering and traveling around the world. So, as a part of this initiative, I’ve been involved in my village and many other social organizations directly and indirectly, focusing primarily on Education, as I believe “Education is the only eye to see the World”.
Currently I’m working as a Treasurer in “NepalkoSathi” – a non-profit Swiss NGO that supports education, health and other areas of development in the remote villages of Nepal. I have also served as Vice-President of the Kapan Sherpa Association, Kathmandu for 5 years. During my tenure, I have focused on the development of cultural activities and facilitated the provision of special English and French language classes during this period.
Similarly, I was a Treasurer, and now an active member of Nepal National Mountain Guide Association, which has been educating Aspiring Nepali mountaineers by offering International Standard Mountain Guiding course every year.
