Young entrepreneur, He earned his experience in the Travel and Tourism Industry serving from the root level of it as a porter then as a guide, group Leader, and operation manager in well-established trekking and Tour Company of Nepal. He has been involved in the tourism business for more than a decade. After spending so many years in the industry with different roles he established his own trekking and tour Company Namaste Nepal Trekking & Research Hub Pvt. Ltd. Let’s hear the exciting story of his success from him!Hello and Namaste! I am Rajan, the founder and managing director of Namaste Nepal trekking & research hub Pvt. Ltd. I grew up in a small village on the lap of the mountain in Gorkha. Scrolling up and down in a mountain was my dealy life. I completed my schooling from Siddha Kali Higher Secondary School, Gorkha, then moved to Kathmandu for further study and find the carrier at the age of 15. I got the opportunity to go trekking with some trekkers as a support staff/Porter into the Langtang valley. It was not easy for me to carry 35 kg in my back and trek for 5-6 hours a day. But that trek changed my life. I think I found my distention on that trek!  I wanted to be able to speak English with tourists and became the trekking guide. Slowly I started to work for the well-established trekking company as a support staff then to assistance trekking guide. After I did trekking guide training in 2010 I became a professional trekking Guide. Besides doing trekking in the high season I continue to study as well. I did my high school and Bachelor’s Degree in Travel and tourism management. I never look back, my passion for traveling, being with nature, finding new places, and meeting new people take me to the most famous trekking destitutions of Nepal. Trekking reasons like Everest, Annapurna, Langtang, and Manaslu were more like my second home. My excellent communication skills, feeling proud and pleasure to serve my excellence to my clients led me to become one of the best guides in the mountains. I started also on to lead tour groups on multi-country tours to Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan, and India. Being a part of mountain climbing expeditions made me familiar with expedition logistics and operations.Everything was going great, I was very close to rich dream distention of establishing NNTR in 2015. But unfortunately from the April 1st, 2015 Massive earthquake, I lost so many things including my house, my job, and some good friends. It was very sad and deprecating. But slowly but surely I knew I would get up again and surpass my detestation. To forget the pain I had, I started to get involved in social work, and to support the local community started to do the volunteer.  Not only did the earthquake change my life, but it also led me to start my Greenhouse charity Sustainable Steps Nepal. Some of my friends from the UK and Canada, we together started a project Sustainable Steps Nepal. Over the past few years, this charity has been successful in supporting the local people of Gatlang Village of Rashuwa District in Nepal with fresh and organic vegetables produce to feed their families with enriched nutritional sources as well as providing a source of income from the local markets.Working in the tourism industry for the following years and serving my excellence to hundreds of trekkers all I wanted was to establish my own trekking and tour company and give good support to all the people around me. It took me 4 years to finally established NNTR after the earthquake. My dream was coming true; all my team was doing great work together. After the end of 2019, the whole world suffers from the Covid-19 Virus. The tourism industry was one of the most affected industries in the virus. For my newly formed company, it was again the big break. We had to face almost year-long luck down. But again slowly but surely we will rise up and become the best service provider in Nepal.The founding of Namaste Nepal Trekking & Research Hub Pvt. Ltd is a milestone in my career. With the establishment of this company, I hope to provide an enriching and bespoke travel experience to all types of travelers from all over the world. I believe that traveling not only takes you to different destinations, it also broadens your outlook and makes you a knowledgeable, compassionate, and better person. Our planet is filled with fascinating places, cultures, and people.
