Kanchhi Maya Tamang

Trekking & Expedition Guide

Kanchhi Maya Tamang, a permanent resident of Bhotag-5, Sindhupalchok, is the First Tamang woman from Nepal to summit Mt. Everest with the message of stopping women trafficking. Since 2017, she is also a gender equality advocate for UN Women. She climbed Mt. Everest for the second time in 2018 to raise voice for women empowerment. Being born to lead treks and expeditions, she has been working in the trekking field for a long time and has tried to summit Makalu (8,481m.) in 2017 but due to bad weather she has to return after reaching 8000+ meters (just above camp 4). She has also climbed many other peaks including Mera Peak (6,470m), the highest peak listed under the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA).

She has been connected to Gurkha Encounters since November 2018 as a Trekking and Expedition Guide. We are confident that her experience and broad knowledge of trekking and mountaineering tourism in Nepal will definitely help and facilitate our guests to plan their tour programmes in better way.
