- Managing Director
After starting as a young porter and eventually guiding trekkers himself to all corners of the Himalaya, Kishwor Adhikari has started his own company – Breeze Adventure. It has been his dream to share these magnificent mountains with people from all over the world and to give the locals the same employment opportunities that shaped his life. Through providing jobs for the locals and educating them on the value of the environment, he is giving for Nepal’s future.
Kishwor was born in a small village near Langtang Himal. He spent his childhood roaming the remote hills, seeking adventure, and enjoying the pristine beauty. Over his lifetime, he has trekked the Indian Himalayas, the mountains of South Africa, and nearly every single trail in Nepal. He has visited the Everest region over 50 times and has been countless times to the Annapurna Kanchenjunga, Langtang, Dolpo, and Dhaulagiri regions. He’s climbed Island Peak, Mera Peak, Lobuche Peak, Tent Peak, and hopes to climb many more. After his family, trekking in the Himalayas is his greatest passion for Life. He’s always on the lookout for new trekking routes to explore.
Still today, KIshwor joins his trekking groups twice a season to revisit the mountains. He loves spending his days amongst pure Himalayan beauty. Also, he strives to be up to date with the trail conditions. So, at the beginning and end of each season, he leads a trek himself. When he’s on the trail, the knowledgeable manager, Mr. Cool, watches over the office. Kishwor’s highest priority is making his clients happy, exceeding their expectations, and giving them a memory of a lifetime in the Himalayas- all while promoting sustainable and ethical tourism.
