A Profile: Saroj Neupane – WHO LEARNT SO MUCH ABOUT WHY THE MOUNTAINS TEACH US SO MUCH ABOUT LIFE.
Mr. Saroj Neupane was born on the mountains in an isolated village in the district of Dhading, the home district of the famous Manaslu and Ruby Valley Trek. Due location of his birthplace, perhaps, Saroj Neupane was destined to become a highly reputed trekking guide over the years. However, a priority for his parents initially, Saroj embarked on his academic career, completed his high school & went on to graduate in Commerce from Nepal’s biggest educational institution – Tribhuvan University.
The road to success in this part of the world is always a thorny one & Mr. Saroj Neupane began his first arduous journey on the thorny trails of life in the year 1994 as trek supporter carrying trekking equipment & food rations for camping treks on Nepal’s punishing but extremely beautiful trails. His first job was also juggled in between his studies to make ends meet & ease the financial strains for his loving parents. With the hard work Saroj put in & developing an innovative knack for discovering new trails for the convenience of trekkers, Saroj soon graduated into becoming a full-blown trekking guide in the year’s end of 1994, leading trek groups independently.
Saroj Neupane got his big break to prove his caliber in successfully leading an expedition of a British team from the Lancashire Mountaineering Club group to Island Peak & Pokalde peak in 1997. This also followed up with an alpine trek to Rolwaling – Amphu Lapcha, Renjo La, Tent peak & also Singuchuli. Mr. Saroj Neupane then pulled all the stops to undertake more daring ventures in his love for the mountains when he organized & led an expedition to Chulu Peak with his repeat guests from the Lancashire Mountaineering Club – the UK in the year 2000. This period also coincided with a long-cherished dream when Saroj founded his own company with the name ‘Beyond The Limits Trekking P. Ltd’, when he led this expedition as a well established Tourism Entrepreneur & someone with a profound love for the great Himalayas & nature which blended extremely well into the lifestyles of Saroj Neupane; who didn’t look back after this…from here on, Saroj went on to lead trekking groups throughout the length & breadth of Nepal’s magnificent Himalayas, covering the famous trails of Everest Base camp, Annapurna Base camp, Langtang Valley, the famous Annapurna Circuit, Dolpa, Mustang, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Makalu, Kangchenjunga & Ganesh Himal, Ruby valley & Arun Valley etcetera. Mr. Saroj Neupane is one among a select few who have covered all the most famous circuits of Nepal’s Himalayas with valuable experience that ensured giving his trekking guests the best that all of these trails have on offer.
Despite being a founder & Managing Director, Saroj did not act the blue collared executive to sit on the chair of a company he worked so hard to establish; Saroj was geared to avoid the respected chair & lead his trekking groups himself, even though he has a team of proficient guides to handle his guests when he’s on the trails. As a reward for his tireless services, Saroj was also elected to the senior post as a member of the Executive Committee of the Trekking Agents Association of Nepal [TAAN] for three years from 2011-13.
Besides his extensive operations in Nepal, Tibet & Bhutan, Saroj has also traveled globally for business promotions of his company to England, Scotland, and Wales, Tibet China) & India, South Africa, Turkey, France, Holland, Belgium, & Thailand & Dubai in the Middle East on tourism missions to promote Nepal as the world’s leading destination for high & wild adventure.
Saroj was also actively involved in earthquake relief missions when the devastating earthquakes hit Nepal in the month of April 2015. He has been involved in several other social activities for marginalized communities in trek regions where he firmly believes in giving back to the communities who inhabit the regions he has visited with his trekking guests.
Today, Saroj has come a long way in the trials of his life on the trails of Nepal’s punishing but otherwise beautiful mountains in blood, sweat & tears. Saroj assures his clients that the company he worked so hard to create ‘Beyond the Limits Treks & Expedition’ offers adventurous activities which are well equipped with a team who simply love their jobs on the mountains of Nepal’s extensive Himalayas.
