Rigzin was born in Thinger, a small village in the Himalayas. He studied tourism management at the Nepal College of Travel & Tourism Management. Afterwards he completed his national Trekking Guide training organized by NATHAM.

“I chose tourism industry as my profession because from my childhood I was very interested in tourist who came to visit our village (Mustang). I like the way they enjoy the nature and meet new people, visiting different cultures and experiencing the new world beyond their boundaries. One thing I appreciate myself from childhood is whenever any guest visit my home I am very fond of serving them with my happy soul. And still today, performing my best in travel industry gives me lots of satisfaction.”
