With the driven motivation to venture into the secluded beauty of Nepal, Raj Kumar Rai established Malung Treks and Expedition in 2014. 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 non-touristic destination at its core, the company has served more than 100 clients from different nationalities namely Canada, USA, Netherlands, Singapore, South Korea, China, and Malaysia with a diverse range of packages. Our founder believes in growth in the community and not just the company which is why the Malung Treks and Expedition has been involved in numerous social initiatives that have brought about a positive growth in the community they pass through in their trip. Sowing seeds for a better future, sense of community has not been lost on Malung Treks an Expedition works hard towards social ventures that help remote settlement in Nepal with a boost in tourism.
The specialty of the company lies in the lesser known touristic destinations, refusing to stick to a stratified segment the company has non-tourist destinations for those that enjoy secluded and rustic environment along with homestays, camping and family trips to help the travelers immerse in the diverse culture the country 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 community to immerse in the tourism activities as well, allowing for them to grow from a mutual exchange with travelers.
Additionally, more specific efforts for their social cause includes Welcome Home an organization which helps differently able children, the company donates 10 percent of their profits to the organization. Our founder also actively participates in the community activities of his birth-place especially during the aftermath of the 2015 earthquake. He believes that while growing up the tourism industry helped him to evolve and grow which is what he wants the communities to benefit from as well.
Much of the non-tourist that are less exposed to the industry of tourism struggle due to the lack of opportunities available in the area, Malung Treks and Expedition wants to change that to establish a community where the tourist activities would result in a win-win situation; tourists would get to explore the lesser known but equally beautiful settlements and trails in Nepal and the communities could benefit from this exposure.
