When leading becomes the way of life.
Khil Thapa is the CEO/founder of Gurkha Adventures and former Queens Gurkha Engineers (QGE) personnel with a colorful military background. Khil is a figure with an excellent decorated profile seeped in blood and sweat. On retirement, this background experience became the platform to launch a business of his own which specialises in organising some of the most challenging adventures in the world.
Khil has walked the trails of Nepal’s vast Himalayas at all times and seasons. He was also a member of a team that summited Mt. Everest in the spring of 2006, with more participation in some highly challenging expeditions on some of Nepal’s most dangerous but beautiful peaks. This warm hearted gentleman is also a skilled map reader and a professional Jungle Survival Instructor. It is these cutting edge experiences that allow him to assemble some of the most trailblazing holiday packages in Nepal.
Khil’s vision has always been to look beyond the tourist traps and to provide practical itineraries that include long-lost mountain trails, hidden valleys, isolated villages and deserted plateaus. His trips are always geared to take you right into the mountains amidst the local folks and their culture where you will discover nature, humanity and above all, yourself. Right from the on start, Khil had always believed in a philosophy that was based on ‘thinking global and acting local’. His only endeavour is to create an inviting environment for all the adventure enthusiasts around the globe.
