In the early nineties no one would have dreamed of a Nepalese woman guiding a trek. Nepalese society is ruled by the Orthodox Hindu religion where women are considered second-class citizens.
Since 1993 Lucky, Dicky and Nicky Chhetri, three Nepalese sisters, were running a restaurant and a lodge in Pokhara. They had the opportunity to meet women from all over the world and came across some unhappy and frightened solo women travelers who had had bad experiences with their male guides. Upon hearing these stories, they felt sad and decided to do something immediately. With urging from friends, they gathered up all courage and entered into this uncharted territory.
