About Me

I was born in Neelkanth Municipality, Dhading District, Nepal. My childhood was spent there for 10 years from birth. Since then, I have been living in Kathmandu with my whole family. Since my father works in the trekking sector, it was natural to go on different trekking routes. I also wanted to go on a trip with my father, but since Baba was affiliated with the company, Baba could not take me even if he wanted to. This is what made me a solo traveler and I have been able to travel almost all over Nepal till today.
