Rajesh, known as Raj, is the founder and owner of Nepal Trekking Experts, as well as the company's main guide. He was born and raised in the mountain region of Manaslu and has a deep and abiding connection with the culture and nature of the Himalayan mountains. With more than 20 years in the trekking industry, from working as a porter and guide right through to his present role as the head of the company, Raj has the knowledge base and wealth of experience to customize and organize treks that fulfill each and every requirement for a successful journey, including permits, equipment, clothing, medical supplies, and safety, as well as a familiarity with the fitness levels and experience required for each of the treks on offer in our portfolio. Having traveled most of the trails available in Nepal he has a deep affinity and connection to the broad spectrum of people and their cultures, as well as a deep appreciation for the various religions, history, flora and fauna of the mountain regions and their scattered valleys. Raj is of a welcoming and positive disposition, with a sense of humor that leaves its mark on all who meet him. With a great facility for the English language and excellent communication skills to go with it he's the perfect host and forthright and effective at answering any and all questions put to him. Of prime concern in his business philosophy is an acute awareness and consideration for the specific needs and concerns of every individual and group that entrust their enjoyment and safety to the company. Raj founded Nepal Trekking Experts with a determination to aim for a level of service and attention to detail that would make the company the gold standard by which others are judged — the crème de la crème of trekking agencies. Raj prides himself on his reputation, that of his agency, and of providing exceptional experiences and lifetime memories for his clients, many of whom have remained friends long after their time in Nepal.
Rabin Neupane, Raj's brother, is also a part owner of the company, as well as the trekking leader, with experience in the industry that goes back to 2005. Honest and dependable and with the same sense of positivity and easy humor as Raj, Rabin is a fine companion and leader on the Himalayan trails. Knowledgeable and full of energy, his boundless enthusiasm, infectious nature and general affinity for his charges makes him a popular choice as a guide. To round out his exceptional people skills he has extensive training in first aid, as a guide, and in rope fixing for climbing purposes, with the same deep appreciation and knowledge of trekking that he and Raj grew up with in the Manaslu region. Rabin also shares the same philosophy on prioritizing the safety and enjoyment of the company's clients, and to that end has generated numerous reviews on places such as TripAdvisor and elsewhere that truly reflect the high regard with which he's held by the many people who've entrusted themselves to his care.
Bikram, grown up in the Everest region, has more than 15 years of experience in the trekking industry and has done all possible treks in Nepal, both well-known ones as well as newly opened ones.
