WHO WE ARE:

Meet the team.


Bigraj Tamang

Founder & Managing Director

Born in Lokhim, a small rural village in the solukhumbu region, Bigraj is a true mountain man. From humble beginnings he found his feet at an early age collecting firewood from the surrounding slopes but his sights were always set higher. Aged just 14 Bigraj set off for Lukla in search of work as a porter and an opportunity to join an expedition. Unsurprisingly the nimble local lad proved himself quickly, not only as a skilled porter but through his ability to learn and pick up languages from the visiting climbers and trekkers.

Bigraj noticed that being able to speak English would help his cause to become a guide so he set about teaching himself by any means possible and sure enough aged just 21 Bigraj had officially become a mountain guide. Since then he has amassed over a decade of experience in the mountains and a depth of knowledge and linguistic skills that really set him apart. Highly respected and loved by all, his diligence, ability and sense of humour make Bigraj one of the finest Nepal have to offer.


Ed Jackson

Co-Founder

Hailing from the UK, Ed’s journey into the Himalayas is an unusual one. In 2017 a successful professional rugby career was cut short by a life changing spinal cord injury. Being told he was likely never walk again Ed set about defying medical opinion and after a year of intensive rehabilitation managed to summit Mt Snowdon, Wales highest mountain.

Far from able bodied but certainly strong minded Ed’s heights were set higher and he soon found himself in Nepal taking on peaks in the Himalayas whilst raising money for local initiatives and inspiring people along the way. It was on one of these trips that Ed and co-founder Bigraj’s friendship was formed and the idea to start an altruistic trekking company was hatched. Whilst Ed is not scaling mountains he can be found supporting his partner charities or on channel 4 reporting on rugby.
