It was in 1998, that Vishma Raj Nepal became acutely aware that the world was becoming increasingly materialistic. Whilst not immune to the allure of materialism himself, he knew that life was more than a person’s possessions or status. What good does it do to own the world but have an impoverished spirit? Vishma understood what many people fail to grasp, that life isn’t about ‘owning’ it’s about living, and as human beings we should seek to live that life in all its fullness.
Stress has become a major contributor to serious illness and is responsible for the loss of billions of dollars world-wide as businesses lose their workers to its insidious effects. People, driven by the need to ‘own’ more, started to rely on medical intervention to see them through the week. Some started to ask, ‘Is this all there is?’, ‘Where is the joy?’, ‘Where is the peace?’
Vishma had experienced the joy that others were looking for and he had that peace that was just a desperate wish for so many. He knew where it came from too. It came from the majesty and mystery of the mountains where he was born. It is this understanding and a desire to share it with as many people as possible that has been the driving force behind, ‘Hiking Himalayas Treks & Expedition ’.
Vishma Raj has trekked on some of the highest and most rugged mountains in the world. His experience has enabled his clients to meet their goals, whether that is an easy going panoramic trek of the Himalaya or conquering some of its most challenging peaks that soar majestically to over 6000 meters.
But there was a problem. Vishma was a successful independent guide with a happy and satisfied client base, but he couldn’t meet the increased demand as his clients referred others to him. Not wanting to disappoint and unwilling to lower standards, ‘Hiking Himalayas Treks & Expedition ’ was born and staffed by trained enthusiastic guides that share Vishma’s vision to see others engage with the wonder that is Nepal.
