CEO Bijay Amatya started Kora Tours as a way to share his love of travel and its rewards with people around the world, and to share a unique glimpse into the culture of his beloved homeland, the Himalaya.
After earning Master's degrees in Marketing and Economics, Bijay found a job in the travel industry, which grew into an awarding career that's accompanied him through 40 years of countless challenges and adventures. During this time he traveled widely, setting foot on 5 continents and nearly every trail in the Nepalese Himalaya.
Bijay is an avid reader and is passionate about trekking, rafting and bird watching, all of which has given him an intimate knowledge of his homeland and the eagerness to share it.
