Trekking in Nepal was started by the British People in late 1920s. George Mallory was the first British person to Take three first British Expedition in the Great Mountain Mt. Everest. Unluckily their stories of climb could never come out. They were disappeared in the Trails of Everest. Mallory’s Body were discovered after 75 Years which was in 1999 AD. Their disappearance made Nepal as an attraction in British and also a curiosity for Nepal.Nepal was made open to explore to outer world only after 1949 when Mr. Bill Tilman got the permission to Explore Nepal through king Mahendra Bir Bikram Shah Dev. Consequently, In 1953 The world highest mountain Mt. Everest (8848 m) was ascended by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa.
After the first Summit of Mt. Everest with the help of Sherpa by New Zealand Mountaineer the tourism in Nepal flourished. Since then, Sherpa were given more priority in Himalaya till date. Similarly, a British Gurkha Officer named Colonel Jimmy Robert who was in the British Embassy in Kathmandu started Trekking in Nepal economically in 1964 AD. With his motivation and influence today we all are here at this position and express our deep gratitude to Mr. Jimmy Robert who is also known as “Father of Trekking” in Nepal.
