Keshar in Person
Keshar was born in a remote village of Gorkha district. A historic city with equally cultural importance, he grew to be a learned denizen. He tried his luck in British Army at a young age, however, he couldn’t succeed, therefore, he joined his relative as an assistant river guide.
His first experience on trail came at Annapurna Base Camp where he went as a porter. He continued as a porter for 6 months, before leading a trek to Langtang-Gosainkunda.
When I first started in this industry, there was no internet. I had to ask experts or consult books to research on trail, altitudes and other information. Now it’s much easier. Trekkers themselves come learned and well prepared.
Till now, he has successfully led countless numbers of treks throughout Nepal.
Nepal has mountains. The main reason that attracts tourists to Nepal is the “Everest.” Its something to be able to tell people that I’ve seen Everest with his own eyes.
