MEET YOUR GUIDES

For the past 12 years, I have been working in Nepal and exploring the Himalayas on my bike. After numerous trips into the Mustang region, I want to share my favorite trails in the world with you, and show you Portal's work empowering people to overcome poverty. In Nepal, you will have a chance to tour the Portal factory, meet our team, and ride the best trails in the world. Join Tenjing and I for the adventure of a lifetime. We hope to see you soon!

Ten years of riding and guiding in Nepal have taught me one thing…..Bicycles. Are. Awesome. This love for bicycles brought me to Portal where I work as the sales manager. I also work part time with my family’s tourism business and am a licensed guide in Nepal. Not only that, but I also have a passion help people overcome poverty with bicycles. I would love to see you in Nepal!
