Background of the Company Founder:

The founder of North Nepal Travel and Trek Pvt Ltd Mr. Mohan Raj Bhandari has been affiliated with the tourism industry since 2007 as a porter. After just completing SLC (Grade 10) he started working as a porter and helping tourists in the Himalayas of Nepal.
Back in the day, the road transportation was only up to Phedi, so all of the trekkers trekking to the Annapurna Sanctuary would go from Naudanda, his home village. During his childhood, he was inspired by the guides wearing black sunglasses, and hats, and carrying cameras around their neck, and decided to become a guide in the future. 

He was just a fresher out of school, so he didn’t have any contacts, so he had to arrange a job as a porter himself. He used to go to Nayapul with Namlo (a rope used by villagers/porters to carry huge bags), and ask tourists with heavy bags “Need a porter?”. The time was difficult and in his own words “I used to carry bags even though I wasn’t sure I would get paid. I used to get attached to a bag and yell this is my bag so that other porters would not disturb the tourists.” The backpacks for porters to carry used to weigh 40+ kilos, and it was in the mountain region so one can only imagine the hardships of porters back then.

Mohan was good at English and even used to help his guides in communicating with the clients. He became a trekking guide after 3 years leaving his days as a porter behind. At that time, Communication was everything, and not many people knew about emails, yahoo, or Hotmail. Mohan used to connect with tourists and ask for his photos in emails, which fostered his bond with his clients. He was recommended by many of his clients so he always had many guide offers that he could handle. He gave some of the clients to his other guide friends, and just like present (now) he used to give opportunities to the porters from poor financial backgrounds. He empowered his friends from his villages and created employment opportunities for them. 

In 2011 he was offered as role of a trekking Manager, in the Himalayan Star Trek and Expedition, and he worked there for 1 year. During his work as a manager, he had 24-hour internet connectivity so he learned more about the digital realm. Even though he was affiliated with the trekking industry, he couldn’t visit places or guide people to the difficult mountain terrains. His passion for guiding reignited so, he quit his job and worked as a guide again in Nepal till 2014.

The devastating earthquake of 2014 also impacted the tourism sector of Nepal, so Mohan set his eyes on Korea. In Korea, he worked as a guide and helped visitors with his excellent command of English and Korean language. After working in Korea for 2 years he came back to Nepal and founded North Nepal Travels and Trek in 2017.

From 2007 to 2023 Mohan now has 16 years of experience in the field of tourism and trekking, ready to offer you an adventure of a lifetime.
