My lifetime Achievement- Everest Base Camp Trek
I started carer as a office boy in a travel agency of Kathmandu.Ramesh Khanal
Everybody have own passion and dreams in a life and work for this. To live to dream I also came to Kathmandu in 2009 after my intermediate education in Arupokhari Gorkha. Kathmandu is a capital of Nepal. My keep interest was work with foreigners because in Arughat I saw many tourists, they were trekking Manaslu region. So, joined in a trekking agency as an office boy, where I got the opportunity to directly talk with tourist.
After a month I was upgraded as an airport guide. I needed to go airport to receive the clients and transfer to hotel, that was good practice for me to speak English and also the experience of woking with them. It was very much interested, love to work. I was at the airport from early morning to late evening. Numbers of clients were received and departed. So the time I also tipped, that was awesome because I was receiving the dollars, euros. It was the very nice day because I was flying in a helicopter to receive the clients from Dingboche valley (44000m. Early morning wake up and went to the domestic terminal for lifetime first flight by Heli. The time duration was more than 2 hrs. WOW! The first experience of Helicopter is quite funny! We (I and pilot sir) get on Heli, I seated on the first seat nearby pilot. The pilot started talked with the station, he continues. I was enjoying the breathtaking views of hills, villages, and snow-capped mountains. My headphone was questioning and I thought these questions were for the pilot. And came to know that the questions were not for the pilot but for me from the pilot. He was asking me how are the feeling and weather? It is your first experience in the mountain, isn't it? Something like this. Finally, the pilot hit me and asked Hey, Bhai Maile timi lai sodheko kasto hudai cha vanera? I shocked and laughed landed at Lukla. After half an hour rest we flew to Dingboche and pick up client and back to Kathmandu.
And in 2014 I got an opportunity to do Everest Base Camp Trek, it was very nice. My dreams came to true, was too much fun, I enjoyed the trek. The team was excellent but the weather was not much favorable. That was my second land at Tenzing-Hilary Airport- Lukla but first with Twin Otter Plane. Now, again I am going to Everest Base Camp with Gokyo Ri in coming May 2017. Gokyo Ri is the stupendous viewpoint for mountains, icy lakes, and glaciers.
