Some Words by Prem


I was convinced that the mountains, the culture and the hospitality had the potential to transform my life.

Born in a remote village, surrounded by lush forest and an endless chain of hills, under the stunning views of Mt. Manaslu and Mt. Ganesh, I have always been awestruck by the beauty of Nepal, which many take for granted. My attachment to nature inspired me to start my career as a trekking Sherpa, which led me to many exotic places. After years of experience, I finally had the opportunity to become a guide, using my knowledge and passion to venture deep into the Himalayas. Adventure traveling, and its magnificent remoteness, instilled in me a sense of peace and enchantment.I was convinced that the mountains, the culture and the hospitality had the potential to transform my life. My destiny was without a doubt tied to exploring the Himalayas, rediscovering my own country on each trip.

As years passed by, I mustered the courage to start Ace the Himalaya, with a rather humble beginning, to not only create a livelihood for myself, but also for those who were equally, if not more, keen about Himalayas.

Ace was an idea that involved sharing with the world my passion for travelling through the woods, over crevasses, along the laps of the mountains that always followed me, and the challenge and thrill of visiting places where no roads lead and no one but the most adventurous dare to tread. My dream, now a reality, has created a lifetime worth of memories and an incredible sense of accomplishment.
