Gurung is the founder and managing director of ‘Nature Excursion Pvt. Ltd.’ The mountains and hills from his village, Rubi Valley, always had him wondering, and he became one of the travel enthusiasts from his early childhood.
Now, he has decades of collective experience arranging tours and travel in the most stunning corners of Nepal, guiding the new generation of travel aspirants.
It wasn’t an easy start for him. As a porter, he began his never-ending journey in travel and tourism at a young age. He recalls his first trekking experience at Manaslu Top Larkey Pass, which was a very tough trail for a young guy. Throughout the way, he cried on a snowy road.
The English language had him questioning everything, while the new faces of foreigners had him curious. Although it wasn’t his career choice, he loved Raju meeting and forming connections with new people from different backgrounds and cultures, and the mountainous landscapes and terrain kept him motivated.
His expertise alone makes him stand out in the crowd of competitive markets, ensuring your comfortable stay in Nepal while you trek with Nature Excursion Pvt. Ltd., with the fact that he is a trained guide recognized by the Nepal Academy of Tourism and Hotel Management (NATHM), having completed Refreshment Training for Mountaineers under the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA).
Not only this, but he is also a certified mountain expert authorized by the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) for completing the 3rd Helicopter Marshall Course in March 2018 and a bachelor’s degree holder in management and commerce who enjoys overcoming the challenges set by life and the Himalayas, where his passion lies.
- Executive Director
‘My motivation is your ultimate satisfaction.’
Mr. Karan Gurung is an excellent team leader and guide from the remote village around Ganesh Himal who seeks satisfaction in the happiness of people around him, whether it is his colleagues, friends, or family. At the same time, his clients remain his top priority.
Unlike others, he discovered his passion in the travel and tourism industry while pursuing his higher education in Kathmandu, which allowed him to associate with his family business of guiding, hosting, and leading adventures with a bachelor's degree in business studies from one of the most reputed educational institutes.
As a bachelor's degree holder, there were multiple career options for him, but he chose what he loved doing: meeting new people and exploring the different parts of beautiful Nepal, which offers something new to its visitors each time. Being a sporty person, what could be a better opportunity for him than leading other adventure enthusiasts to their dream place?
Although he began as a potter for 2 years and spent 1 and a half years as a trainee guide with all the required training and license, he later explored many beautiful parts of the country as one of the top guides, whose happiness is within his clients' joy and fulfillment of their wish to see real nature and the Himalayas. Now that he is the executive director of the nature excursion, he looks forward to 100% safety and satisfaction from the nature excursionist!
