He has been working in trekking tourism and for more than 22 years guiding groups to Langtang, Gosaikunda, Annapurna, Mustang, Manaslu, Everest, Dolpo,. In 2011 I established my own trekking agency. Hes feel very close with USA in Americas and Europe, European friends in Spain, French, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Portuguese, Austria, Netherlands. As well I got the chance to do trekking in Nepal. He is intimately familiar with numerous local traditions, customs and languages of all the major trekking areas. He loves to share his cultural insights with our clients that are not covered in any guide book. For his work, he has always received outstanding reviews and the highest degree of appreciation.
Durga is also a highly engaged social worker. In rural villages of remote places such as the Rasuwa district people mainly live self-sufficient and often the food that is grown (mainly barley, wheat and potatoes) is often not enough to feed its inhabitants during the four harsh winter months let alone financing education for the youngsters. Being a half orphan himself and coming from a very poor background Durga knows of the importance of receiving a decent education and started his mission for the new generation. In order to support the people of his home district Rasuwa he established the local NGO “Rural Tourism and Environment Education Society” (RTEES Nepal) in 2009. The organization is aiming to enhance the economic capacity of rural communities by eco-friendly and qualitative tourism. The gain from this ultimately goes to the schools and children of the communities. RTEES Nepal is therefore proud to support five schools, Buddhist Monastery and is actively involved in local development.
