Ram Kumar Adhikari
Mr. Ram Kumar Adhikari, son of a retired Corporal from the Nepalese Army, has devoted half his life to the country’s trailblazing Himalayan circuits & Nepal’s tourism sector. Mr. Adhikari came into the world in the year 1978, and hails from a pretty hamlet called Phulkharka in the district of Dhading that sits in the shadows of the imposing Ganesh Himal which can be seen right from the village he was born in...as a little boy in his village, Ram always stared in awe of the huge mountains above his village & wondered about its environment from a very tender age; but he knew that it had to begin by education if he wanted to do something good for his country & its pride – the Himalayas. He went on to graduate in Anthropology and Political Science from Nepal’s biggest university - Tribhuvan University of Nepal. And all this was accomplished while using his spare time to guide trekkers on the mountains he loved...and this is where his idea was born – protecting the fragile ecosystems of these mountains he loved so deeply, & so was born the company ‘Alpine Eco Trek & Expedition’...
Ram was always emotionally touched with the beauty of Nepal, which most others take for granted. This inspired him to walk in the woods as a little boy & make discoveries which later helped in building his career to what it is today. Mr. Adhikari loved to wander deep into the Himalayas & his gut instincts told him that the trees were not only the forests but much more than that...this is also where he soon learnt that life must be a risky Adventure...or simply nothing!! A sense of peace and fascination always touched his soul deeply & he soon discovered the mountains, its people & culture and the grassroots hospitality that were gems which changed his life forever...his childhood walks across hamlets, jagged crests & forests with sweet chirping birds seemed to have followed him wherever he went...and discovered some places where only the daring would seek to tread...it was this search of the unknown that shaped his destiny & taught him to rediscover & love his own country with the trips that followed in later years....
Nepal is a highly politicalised country where every government organ that exists is wracked by bushwhacking politics; & this also includes the tourism sector where most tourism entrepreneurs find themselves more involved in the decadent politics of Nepal’s neglected but money spinning tourism sector, but Mr. Adhikari has been wise to stay out of this instable political wrangling, instead giving most of his time to the development of his company & finding ways to give his guests extraordinary holidays of substance.
Today, Ram’s boyhood dreams have become a reality, creating a whole lifetime’s worth of unforgettable memories and an unbelievable sense of triumph & achievement...which has made life so much more worth living…for him & his guests...
