Woman Trekking Guide Leads The Way in Nepal

Started Ten Years Ago

A decade ago in when Saraswati Biswakarma first began plying her trade as a trekking guide she was met with some considerable resistance from her male counterparts. They would quite often remind her that she was taking a job which was considered male only territory. The 28-year-old guide explains, ”’You’ve snatched our job’, they would shout when I walked up the mountains with over 10kg on my back.”

One of the few Females to Climb Annapurna IV

In a profession which has always been the domain of Nepalese men, Biswakarma is one of the first females to undertake this kind of work – and she remains one of the few women in Nepal who have been able to take up work as a trekking guide. As part of this process she has had to face some very stern physical tests and to date she is one of just a handful of women to have climbed Annapurna IV. This ascent is considered by most to be one of the hardest challenges in Nepal.
