NEPAL: TRANSFORMING LIVES THROUGH OPPORTUNITY, EDUCATION & CONSERVATION

Due to its magnificent natural resources, Nepal’s adventure travel industry represents one of the nation’s most significant revenue streams and employs thousands of Nepalis in all sectors of travel and tourism. For many Nepalis, working in adventure travel is their primary access to economic opportunity. However, the future of Nepal’s adventure travel industry faces considerable challenges due to escalating threats from pollution, damming, and over-trafficking. Without better education, policies, and conservation to sustain its natural resources, Nepal’s outdoor treasures will inevitably fade - along with the incredibly important economic opportunities they provide her citizens.

We are working with Nepal’s government agencies and adventure guides to improve their education, leadership, and conservation practices to ensure the long-term sustainability of Nepal’s natural resources and the economic opportunities that depend on them.

With 35 years of experience in Nepal’s adventure travel industry, Thunder Dragon is uniquely positioned to make a difference. Our Co-Founder, Gerry Moffatt, is Nepal’s first International Goodwill Ambassador for Adventure Travel. We are working closely with the Nepal Tourism Board, Nepal’s Association of Rafting Agencies, and the Nepal Sports Council to raise professional safety and training standards, increase responsible environmental stewardship, and create sustainable career paths for young Nepali guides.
