3 sisters celebrate 15 years, what an amazing journey!

3 Sisters Adventure Trekking celebrates 15 years since it was founded by Lucky, Dicky and Nicky Chhetri in Lakeside Pokhara. Today the company has grown from three sisters to over thirty brothers and sisters working full-time and over 100 trainees working part time during the peak trekking season.

We are fortunate to have been surrounded by many people who we would like to take this opportunity to thank;  our family, staff, volunteers, clients, friends and well-wishers for their encouragement, support and believing in us working together to foster gender equality in Nepal.

On this 15 year anniversary 3 Sisters Adventure Management provided a 10 days trip to India-Darjeeling, Sikkim and Siliguri for our full-time staff in order to thank each one of them for their hard work, dedication and utmost efforts to make the company more effective and successful.

The journey of 3 Sisters Adventure would not have been possible without each one of you. Thank you all!

Lucky, Dicky and Nicky Karki Chhetri

Volleyball!

Unfortunately the EWN trainees and 3 Sisters’s guides can’t all be trekking 24-7 , but there are many nice alternatives to stay in shape! One of them is volleyball. Three times a week at 6:30 in the morning the EWN trainees, guides and children can come to volleyball practice in a park by Phewa Lake. Coach Bhim Parajuli, a former national volleyball player, gives helpful advice and one-on-one training, making sure everyone benefits from practice. No matter what the weather, rain or shine, you will always find our girls out on the field, playing and having fun. A big thank you goes out to Coach Bhim Parajuli for his efforts and his great coaching skills! Keep up the great work ladies!

Millenium Travels from the Netherlands at 3 Sisters and EWN!

Right after the 4-week training a few of EWN’s and 3Sisters’ trainees and guides had been selected to participate in a Cultural Exchange Program with a team from  Netherlands, organized by Angélique Hornstra, the Program Director of Millenium Travels.

The Millenium Travels program consisted of many different workshops and activities which the Dutch participants had organized.

The incentive was to understand each other’s culture and the differences between cultures in general and to have a very versatile exchange.

The activities ranged from making music together to building incredibly high towers with marshmellows and toothpicks and everybody had a lot of fun.

On Friday, the girls from EWN and 3Sisters gave a great performance in a play about an arranged marriage and all the difficulties that come with it.

To put their newly learned skills to the test, the Millenium group and the girls went on a 4-day trek together.

Everybody had a great time and benefitted immensely from this exchange-program and we would like to thank Angélique and Millenium Travels  very much for organizing it, as well as Marleen and Barrie for helping out with the organization at EWN.
