About us: Pure Nepal personnel
Pure Nepal combines East and West
Pure Nepal combines Nepali knowledge and experience with Dutch support. Shiva Sapkota and Ilse Sapkota-Bennink have been working at their travel agency together since 2008. They have a daughter and a son together.
Shiva Sapkota is the founder of Pure Nepal Trekking & Expedition (P.) Ltd. Shiva was born in the Dhading District of Nepal. He knows Nepal through his own life and experiences. He worked in the tourism industry for a number of years before establishing his own travel agency, Pure Nepal. “I want to provide my guests with an authentic and unforgettable vacation!”
Ilse Sapkota-Bennink was born in the Netherlands and has been living in Nepal since 2007. “Shiva’s Eastern background and my Western background complement each other to form an ideal combination! Through personal contact and short lines of communication, we’re able to make more possible for both our guests and travelers as well as for the people here in Nepal.”
