As a tourist guide, he has developed an incredible knowledge of Nepali and Tibetan history, culture, tradition, nature and religion. Because of his deep respect for all cultures and religions of Nepal he is a very patient and polite person, which has helped him lead many successful tours in Nepal and Tibet.
