Founded in 1994 by three Nepali sisters, 3 Sisters Adventure Trekking has grown from a small local business to one of the best trekking companies in the Pokhara region. They currently employ over 100 female guides and have trained over 2000 in total. In 1999 Empowering Women of Nepal was founded, which is an NGO. The three sisters have faced numerous obstacles to their goals over the last 24 years. In the early 1990s it was unheard of for women to be mountain guides and the idea drew backlash from some members of the community. However, 3 Sisters Adventure Trekking has grown in spite of this. Youth unemployment is a big problem in Nepal, as is gender inequality. Many young women have taken the opportunity for a career and for self-development. The training program builds confidence and professional skills, and graduates of the program have gone on to set up their own businesses. Lucky, Dicky and Nicky, the original three sisters, say: “Whether or not these women go on to become a guide, we feel it is a seed planted for them and future generations. We demonstrate that women are mentally, physically and emotionally as strong as men.”
