Ganesh Himal, Mr. Simkhada was greatly influenced by the breathtaking scenic beauty of his hometown, and the charm tourism industry eludes through its interaction with varied cultures, adventurous expeditions, and awe-inspiring nature.

Ganesh Simkhada, the Founder, CEO, and Managing Director of Himalayan Marvel Adventure came into the world of travel and tourism in 1992. He was raised by his mother and spent his childhood in the lap of Ganesh Himal in Darkha. Climbing hills was an everyday affair and each day he had to walk several kilometers to get to school.

In a career spanning nearly three decades, he has achieved more than anybody dreams of achieving.

After passing high school, he began helping out some trekking guides and was soon recruited as a guide at a local trekking company. Within a short period of time, he was individually guiding clients across the well-known trails of the Himalayas. His excellent communication and PR skills led him to become one of the most popular guides. He went on to lead tour groups on multi-country tours to Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan, and India. Being a part of mountain climbing expeditions familiarized him with expedition logistics and operations. Later on, he went on to become the Executive Director and took over the reins of the Operations, Sales, and Marketing departments.
