Puru Thapaliya (Founder & Managing Director)
Puru Thapaliya, managing director and founder of My Everest Trip, has been trekking through the Himalayans since he was a kid – and loves to share his passion for adventure, nature, and the region with travelers, near and far. He’s a certified guide and tour operator through Nepal’s Ministry of Tourism; a member of the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) and the Kathmandu Environmental Education Program (KEEP); and specializes in mountain trekking and peak climbing.
He’s assembled an award-winning team of expert operators, guides, and partners that focuses on giving visitors both the thrill of new experiences while also offering deeper connections to local peoples and their natural environments.
From Puru: “I was born and raised in the Langtang region, a mountainous region in Nuwakot only 45 kilometers north of Kathmandu. As a young boy I simply loved running up and down the mountains everywhere I went.
When I was older I started working in Nepal’s tourism industry. The first few years I worked hard as a porter. A few years later I completed my guide training and started working on different trekking routes and tours in Nepal as well in other Trans-Himalayan destinations like Tibet, Bhutan and India.
My love for the Everest and the Himalayas, literally translated as “abode of snow”, are deeply rooted in my childhood. Somehow, Mt. Everest and the Himalayas have the magical power to make my heart fly high in the sky.”
