SOM G.C. is one of those rare individuals who passion for wildlife and
conservation simply dominates his being.

A product of the Chitwan area, home to some of the world’s most
amazing wildlife and endangered species, Som has a knowledge of
bird life matching his dedication.

Being charged at by elephants or tough trekking through unchartered
terrain are not deterrents for Som as he undergoes surveying,
research and guiding through Nepal’s challenging landscapes.  
Som’s birding skills take him to India as well as Terai jungles and the
Himalayan mountains of his homeland Nepal.

Som is also responsible for engaging youth into conservation
workshops in his birth region of Chitwan.  Som’s passion for wildlife
is a boon for the future guardians of the jungle.

In 2014 Som will be the Operations Manager for WildTiger’s trekking
program.  Conservation and environment appreciation are  major
themes in helping people enjoy and learn in Nepal’s astonishing
jungles and mountains.

By taking part in these treks and tours visitors are not only helping the
tiger, wildlife, habitat and people but enhancing their own
understanding of many challenging issues.  These are the values
Som G.C. stands for.  Read

here how you can journey with Som.
