I work at XcelTrip Nepal as its Deputy Country Director. XcelTrip is an Online Travel Aggregator based in Kathmandu, I have been in the travel trade for more than 25 years, first as a journalist writing on travel and tourism. I worked as CEO of the Nepal Association of Tour Operators and SKAL Club of Kathmandu for more than two years. Before joining XcelTrip I worked with Nepal Tourism Board for 16 years as Media Consultant. I was also the first Event Director of Tenzing Hillary Everest Marathon in 2003 to 2005.

I have extensive experience in the tourism industry. I also led the crisis management unit of Nepal Tourism Board for 16 years and played a pivotal role during and after Earthquake 2015 for the revival of the tourism industry of Nepal. I believe that I can help the Nepalese tourism industry for mapping the roadmap for survival and revival of the tourism industry.
