    Sharing and guiding over 50 trips up to the Khumbu Valley of Nepal over 35 years

    Chris Walker and Nepal

    Nepal has shaped me

    Chris Walker began his 35 year long association with Nepal after completing his MBA at the University of NSW in 1987. His first visits were personal as he was on a mission to learn from Nepalese culture a better way for Western Corporations to integrate a deeper humanity. Chris believed that Nepalese cultures offered the perfect formula for improved diversity, compassion and life balance while advancing the ideals of the Sherpa Mountaineering courage and commitment.


    The Mystical

    the joy of living

    At first he went alone but soon started to bring executives and friends to Nepal. In his words he became “addicted to Nepal” while he obsessed with bringing more and more of Nepalese culture to the world he also became totally committed to bringing people to Nepal to wonder and explore a different way of living. He has integrated this learning into his management consultancy business and promoted this new idea of human development with success in American corporations, Canadian government and of course, Australian business.

    The Healing

    you will be changed

    Chris has visited the Khumbu valley over 55 times. He started with sitting on the roof of the public bus to Jiri and walking up, but, with time and age, he now loves to fly to Lukla and walk a little more comfortably. His relationships with his friends in Kathmandu spans some 3o years, and his adopted communities in Namche Bazaar, Phortse and other Nepalese mountain areas have given Chris the opportunity to support many projects to help those in need in Nepal.

    The Humanity

    balancing perspectives

    As a friend of Nepal Chris has always reached out to help build tourism, support aid events and promote foundations set up to help children in difficulty.


    A spine operation a few years ago has reduced Chris’ frequency to Nepal but not for long.

    The Challenges

    altitude and attitude we grow

    Walking through a valley or trekking at altitude the key we find and get to explore in Nepal is attitude. Our complicated lives become simplified by the great awareness that we can be most happy quite often with less.

    Chris Walker and Nepal

    Nepal has shaped me

    "Throughout the journey of my life, and for the past 35 years, Nepal has shaped me in so many ways: her mountains have humbled me to the realisation of how small we are in this vast world, her people have inspired me by showing the absolute in love and compassion without effort or expectation. Her culture has shown me the true wonder of diversity and Nepal's recovery after so many hardships has taught me the true humanity of resilience. I owe Nepal everything."
