Trekking Agency Association of Nepal is an association which represents all the trekking agencies in Nepal. With his high reputation and popularity Mr. Mohan Lamsal has been elected in key post such as General Secretary for 2011 to 2013. He later became the Treasurer of the association.
Porters play a vital role in the success of any trekking or expedition coming from a low income bracket they carry loads from camp to camp. A porters association was formed to cater to the needs of the porters. With the formation of the association it has now become mandatory for all trekking agents to look after the porter’s welfare. Now each trekking agency provides each porter warm Jacket, warm pants, boots, woollen gloves, shocks and caps. Each porter now has an insurance policy which covers up accidents as well as life insurance. Mr. Mohan Lamsal served as the president of the porters association from 2009 to 2011. During this period he introduced many things for the welfare of the porters.
Having deep knowledge of the Trekking, Travel and Mountain Biking business he frequently travels to America and European countries to take part in the various travel marts in order to market the various Trekking, Mountain Biking and Expedition products.

Mr. Laxman Lamsal is the Managing director of Makalu Adventure Tours and Travel. He along with 9 other staffs have been managing the Tours and Travel section since 2000. Makalu Tours and travels does domestic as well as international ticketing using the following systems; Amadeus, Abacus & Galileo. Under the management of Mr. Lamsal this company is now associated with IATA, NATA, PATA, and German Chamber of Commerce.
Besides ticketing Mr Laxman Lamsal and his team also conduct sightseeing tours for all our groups within Nepal. Recently under the initiative of Mr. Lamsal we have been conducting out bound tours for Nepalese people, mainly too Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Europe, U.S.A. and other South Asian destinations.
Ms Lamsal owes the responsibility of the overall management of an organization. She highly focuses on ideas about business relying on providing values in exchange for the consumer’s money – the buyer is not coerced or forced into making a purchase. She believes that every (tourism) product or service or itineraries we sell should become something bigger than a transaction.
Ms Lamsal is greatly inclined to the CSR aspect of the organization – calls it the Impact Fund – this way it is not just an offering/donation but seed capital for something bigger. Her ideas on reconnecting the company success via business with social progress is admirable – shared value is not social responsibility, philanthropy, or even sustainability, but a new way to achieve economic success – win win win to all. It is not on the margin of what companies do but at the center.
"Madam" Nirmala is tactful enough in convincing us that our company is our canvas if we can bring forward our greatest work that really matters. And our successful example becomes the catalyst for others in our industry & marketplace.
Many of you may have met Prakash Acharya in his role as one of the most cheerful members in a team who is always willing to help our valued guests, guides and colleagues.
