Ganesh Khanal, Sales Manager/Team Leader of Odyssey Treks, has been involved in the tourism sector since 1995. With an interest in trekking and travel, Ganesh started his career with trekking groups as an assistant. After working as an assistant for a few years, he gained a lot of experience and started working as a guide. Within a short time of working as a guide, he started working as a team leader to run a large group.
After a long experience as a team leader, he started the company Odyssey Treks with his experienced friends thinking of doing something new and bigger. He has done almost all the trekkings of Nepal leading various tourists and he knows very well what the tourists like so he is involved in the design of each trip himself. Ganesh also plays an important role in maintaining excellent relationships between the company and customers.
Have just returned from my fourth trip to Nepal and as always Odyssey Treks organized everything superbly. We visited Makalu relatively late in the season and were rewarded with empty trails and amazing weather. Karma was as entertaining, friendly, and informative as ever along with Ang Dawa Sherpa who together made the three weeks perfect.
They also organized a few days to Helambu at short notice as I had some time spare, all done easily and professionally. Thanks for the company both and I will be back again. I cannot recommend Odyssey highly enough as a genuinely friendly, locally based company that provides not only unforgettable experiences but also great service at a very reasonable cost.
I have just returned from the trip of a lifetime. Always wanted to visit and see the Himalayas and to have completed the trip with the most excellent hosts really made the trip come alive. Odyssey took care of everything and ensured that we experienced real Nepalese hospitality. We climbed up to 3700 meters, saw Ganesh Himal, experienced true excitement on the trek, ate superbly produced fresh food along the route..and above all met some amazing people. Thanks to Karma, Rinji, and our fantastic porters…without you guys it wouldn’t have happened!! All the best. Alex
