Welcome to 3Sisters Adventure Trekking where for 25 years, we have pioneered and specialized in training and employing female guides and assistants for treks in and around the Himalayas in Nepal, India, and Bhutan. With this groundbreaking approach, we have empowered the women in Nepal to develop their talents and become self-reliant.
We welcome trekkers from all over the world to join us. When you trek with us, you’re empowering one woman at a time.
In 1993 we were running a restaurant and a lodge in Pokhara. We met women from all over the world and came across some who had bad experiences with their male guides. These stories touched us and we resolved to do something.
Lucky, Dicky and Nicky Chhetri are three Nepalese sisters and pioneers in the field of female trekking guides. Since 1994, they have worked towards empowering women in Nepal through their trekking agency 3 Sisters Adventure Trekking and their NGO Empowering Women of Nepal. Entering an uncharted territory In the early ‘90s, no one would have dreamed of a Nepalese woman guiding a trek. In Nepalese society, a woman receives less education and is expected to stay at home. In this society, many women are not allowed or encouraged to work outside.
Empowering Women of Nepal is a grassroots non-profit organization that was registered in 1999 under Nepal’s Social Organization Act 2034 (1977). EWN aims to empower, educate and create employment opportunities to improve the lives of disadvantaged Nepali women and girls through adventure tourism and sports. It was founded by three Nepalese sisters, Lucky, Dicky and Nicky Chhetri, who were pioneers in the promotion of female trekking guides in the Himalayas.
