He has a deep sense of humanity. Besides mountaineering, his interests are in rescuing and providing reliefs. In recognition to his relentless contributions in rescuing the victims of ‘Everest Tragedy 2014’, Nepal Mountaineering Association had awarded him with letter of appreciation. Similarly, Summiteers Association and High Altitude Mountain Worker Welfare Association appreciated his support to the victims of Nepal Earthquake 2015. He is motivated and guided with the philosophy of ‘Why not initiate if we can’. Realizing the controversy about ‘Hilary Step’ of Mt Everest in international media and the silence of national authorities, he decided to showcase a photo exhibition ‘Hilary Step to Sagarmatha’ to bring out the facts about whether Hilary Step has disappeared or not. #photoNepal is an initiation of NTB to promote tourism through photographs.
