Arjun Adhikari

Nepal Guide

Arjun has been lead guiding with Active since 2013 and has a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm, not to mention the biggest smile in the Himalayas. He is a village leader in his community and extremely passionate about Nepali culture. Along with Dk (Dan Keys) Arjun started 'The Active Hearts Foundation' which facilitates small village projects, especially in the areas of education and health. He has three beautiful children and still spends a lot of his free time farming his land in the Himalayan foothills. Arjun speaks fluent English, Malay, Nepali and Hindi. Our guests frequently comment on Arjuns caring and patient nature and he is a real assist to our Nepali guiding team. Arjun
