His more than 10 years of experience in the field made him well aware of the off- beat paths in Nepal that resulted in beautiful terrains, he was determined to make sure the world knew of these immaculate findings as well and worked actively to bring remote and rural areas in Nepal into the limelight.
With the promotion of unexplored and remote destinations in Nepal at its core, Malung Treks and Expedition has organized and guided guests from different nationalities namely Canada, USA, Australia, Germany, Singapore, Hongkong, Netherlands South Korea, China, and Malaysia with a diverse range of packages and tours. Raj Kumar Rai believes in growth in the community and not just the company which is why Malung Treks and Expedition has been involved in numerous social initiatives that have brought about a positive growth in the rural communities they pass through during their trip. Sowing seeds for a better future and helping in the development of the remote communities in Nepal. Malung Treks and Expedition works hard towards social ventures that help remote settlements in Nepal with a boost in tourism.
The specialty of Malung Treks and Expedition lies in the lesser known touristic destinations, refusing to stick to a stratified segment the company has unexplored and lesser touristic destinations for those that enjoy secluded and rustic environments. Organizing also homestays, camping and family trips to help travelers immerse in the diverse culture Nepal has to offer. The heart of any business lies in their ability to grow but for Malung Treks and Expedition it extends well beyond this, the company has shown a responsibility towards the travelers by providing excellent services while simultaneous working on specific ways to help the Nepali communities to immerse in tourism activities as well, allowing for them to grow from a mutual exchange with travelers and so promoting sustainable tourism in Nepal.
