Hi! I am Rai, a professional Nepalese Trekking and Tour Guide – energetic, smart, hard working and honest. I was born in a remote mountain village in the Everest region of Nepal and grew up learning all about our mountain and culture. My passion is sharing my knowledge and experience with visitors to Nepal.
As an authorized professional Trekking and Tour Guide with over 10 years of experience and deep local knowledge, I have the ability to show you some of the best that Nepal has to offer.
After completing schooling in my village I trained at the Nepal Academy of Tourism and Hotel Management, and achieved the highest mark of an “A” grade, earning my official Nepal Government Trekking Guide license and then after graduation I achieved my Nepal Government Tourist Guide license.
Since then, I have been leading treks and cultural tours in many parts of Nepal for hundreds of clients, from many countries including U.S., Australia, Canada, Netherlands, Italy, France, Spain, Germany, Luxemburg, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, Argentina, S. Korea, South Africa, Israel etc.
We usually converse in English. To improve my skill I earned a Masters Degree from Tribhuban University, Nepal.
Nepal has much diversity in geography, climate, biology, people, culture and religion. For example, more than 123 languages are spoken by more than 92 ethnic groups. Nepal is small in area but it takes time to understand the differences east to west and north to south.
I can provide excellent guide service in all the most popular areas of the Himalayas, including Everest, Annapurna and Langtang. Whether you are a group, family or solo, I can help you plan a trek that best meets your interest in mountain scenery, difficulty, culture and nature. With me, you will not just see the spectacular scenery, you will also learn about the plant and animals of the area, and the culture of the villages we pass.
If your interest is in the cultural sites, temples, and monuments of Nepal, I can take you to many of our great cultural sites and help you understand their history, context and meaning. Nepalese culture is ancient and rich, so there is much to share. I can take you to interesting heritage sites in Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Patan, Pokhara, Chitwan and Lumbini. You will learn the historical and cultural meaning and can even take a walk to a nearby village or park.
Please, explore the rest of my site. I would be happy to assist you with your travel in Nepal.
