I have been involved in the Mountaineering & Trekking industry in Nepal from 1995AD. I have successfully climbed Everest 8 times from both the North & South sides.
I have also climbed Mt. Everest without any assistance carrying the Football of Liverpool club England & Autograph of 10,000 (ten thousand) peoples in 2016 from Nepal side. Motivating athletes for climbing Everest of Nepal.
I have extensive knowledge of the tourism & trekking industry throughout the Himalayas of Nepal,
I was involved as a Nepali Sherpa to be employed as an Actor for the Hollywood Movie ‘Everest’
Hollywood movie 2015,
It was a great opportunity to promote Nepal’s Travel, Tourism, Trekking, Mountaineering, culture, religion, and many more. Today I feel very proud of seeing myself with Nepal’s National flag in the movie. People around the world knew where Mt. Everest & Nepal is located. Because before the movie was released only a few foreign country people knew about Nepal.
This movie has given me a good opportunity to promote Nepali culture, Sherpa community’s culture, introducing God of peace Lord Buddha, & Many more about Nepal Tourism.
Besides the “Everest” movie, I have been involved in many other documentary and movie series to promote Nepal’s tourism sector in the international media which are listed below:

Patle Okhaldhunga, Nepal
Working in the development of the education sector in rural areas of Nepal after the biggest national disaster by earthquake.
After that, I started promoting educational tourism in Nepal. That was a great success to bring lots of tourists to Nepal for the charity trekking program. Also at the same time, we were able to help people in different earthquake-affected areas.
Supporting & Helping victims after earthquake 2015
During the devastating earthquake in Nepal in 2015, most of the houses in Patle were destroyed. People were helpless and due to poor road condition relief materials were hard to supply. People from different parts of the world came for rescue operations like Karina Oliani from Brazil, Caddia from Thailand, and Pemba Sherpa. The road was not in good condition so rescue operations were carried out with the help of a helicopter. Temporary Shelter, Water, and Food were provided to the affected people. In Sindhu Palchowk, mobile heath camps were established with the help of foreign doctors for one week.
Karina Oliani and her team remained in that area continuously for one week to help all the people suffering from different problems and diseases. Various surgeries were carried out within 1 week. People who could not afford medicine or did not have access to hospitals were treated free of cost. Various vaccinations programs were also carried out and rescue operations were also carried out in various places of Kathmandu. Most of the funds were we collected by charity trekking & expeditions. So, for future emergencies, we are preparing ourselves to promote charity trekking & Expeditions.
Inauguration of Safe drinking water
Clean drinking water is a great problem in rural areas of Nepal. In most places, people have to walk for 2 hours to fetch spring water. These places have not received any help from the government yet. The water that they fetch is also not safe for drinking. A safe drinking water supply project was established in Phakse and Bamdoka, one of the remote areas of Nepal. The water source used in this project was 3km far from both villages. This project was funded by myself and Karina Oliani’s team from South America. The project was conducted to raise public awareness for Public Health and Saving Environment by promoting Eco-Tourism in rural villages.

Road Construction Project
These are some of the social projects or activities that I have been part of. There are still more ongoing projects in rural areas for public transport, emergency access & developing Eco-Tourism.
