Krishna is a trained sociologist who used to help his uncle and his trekking business as a guide during his schooling vacations. Later he worked for International NGOs and didn't like the dependency on donor money and the way they work was done on the ground. He met street kids during his work travels and felt that he had to do something to help them, and since his knowledge was in trekking and tourism he decided to start a trekking company that will be the source of financial sustainability to children home that him and his friends established. He opened 'Ethical Trekking' with the idea of giving guides and porters the best conditions (full insurance, weight limits and good equipment) and provide a great service for travelers. He's extremely community-oriented and has the best interests of his community in mind (creating local jobs and preventing migration and family separation). The children that "graduate" from the children home are invited to take part in the business, get some work experience and find reasons and skills to stay in Pokhara and support the local community and economy. He's such a delightful human being and really does operate from the heart.
