About Us

Changing with the Times

Based on our own experiences, we decided that it was time that travel providers changed, time in fact to create something new. Truthfully, at one point we were thinking to be one of the more than 630,000 youths who leave the country every year to work overseas. The other side of the coin was to stay here and be one of the 10% of youths actually making a difference and supporting the country from the inside.

Being tired of the old way things were done, we wanted to give other travellers the opportunity to see the world as we see it. We wanted to smooth out the bumps that we came across ourselves while exploring these areas and help others have an even better experience.

While running a trekking agency was a totally new field for Saugat, Pradeep was co-partner in another trekking agency for three years prior to forming Magical Nepal. So, it was a perfect fit actually!

However, we took the plunge, and started Magical Nepal with a lot of enthusiasm, (a lot of balls you might say!), Rs 1,000 and a cup of tea!

Sustainable Growth

One year on, we are growing fast – much more quickly than we anticipated. So we are having to improve ourselves and grow with the company. Our main intention still stays the same: to provide you with the best self-collected information, rather than drag you into a fixed price package deal. In this way, you can sit down with us, and create your own journey to fit your personality, interests, fitness level, and budget. In this way you will have the chance to fully enjoy your time in Nepal and feel you had the chance to explore it yourself.

A big item on our list when establishing Magical Nepal was to operate all treks locally, to include the community and environment in the benefits your money brings to the country. Our Team is growing day by day, as is our involvement with local communities we trek through. We hope we energize the local communities as much as well feel energized by them. We want everyone to experience the magical world of Nepal the way we do.

Why Book with Us

‘We fell in love with the magical spirit of travelling and wanted to have this love in our professional lives also. So now we do what we love, and love what we do. We want to share this feeling with our clients.’

Magical Nepal was founded in 2015 by Saugat Adhikari and Pradeep Guragain, two young, ambitious Nepali guys who love to travel. Travelling around other parts of Asia it occurred to them individually, but simultaneously, why not apply their love of travel to the one country they knew better than any other – Nepal.

So over a cup of tea and with Rs1,000 in the kitty, the idea of combining the love of travel, love of country, and a way to provide themselves and others with a sustainable career, took shape. Magical Nepal was born!
