The Founders

Jwalant Gurung – Chief Adventure Officer

A Nepal native, Jwalant’s passion is the outdoors. Born and raised in the shadow of Annapurna, his quest for adventure was stoked early in life. Any place in Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet – he has either traveled or plans to visit in the very near future. A 2006 University of Washington MBA graduate, Jwalant is constantly creating new itineraries for his clients. His near-term travel plans include the Steppes of Mongolia, the Kanshung Face of Everest in Tibet and Ladakh’s Spiti Valley. He also manages Crystal Mountain Treks, our sister company in Nepal.
