Oneals Backpackers Adventure was founded in late 2012. During his time working for a travelers hostel Oneal and a group of travelers set off on a journey to East Nepal to explore the hidden view point of Sandakphu. It wasn’t only a hike, it was also a life changing journey for Oneal. Reaching Sandakphu at an altitude of 3660m through snowfall for the first time in his life was incredible. The views of Mt Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Kumbakarna and the Himalayan range extending up to Bhutan was not only breathtaking but also an eye opening experience. After the trip Oneal gave up his job at the hostel and started dreaming more about the mountains and guiding people. Since their first days Oneal and his team have always been exploring different regions of Nepal exposing visitors to Nepal’s beauty and real culture.

Initially Oneals Backpackers Adventure was more a Facebook page than a company. With the love, support and recommendations of friends from all around the world his dream of guiding people came true. After a couple of treks very quickly mountains became a way of life. A big thank you to Mr Hem Krishna Chapagain who not only supported us financially to register Oneals Backpackers Adventure legally as a trekking tour operator but also encouraged and advised us on every step.
Oneals Backpackers Adventure is not just a trekking tour operator. It is a passion and way of life for Oneal and his team. We express our deep gratitude to our valuable clients (more like friends now) and everyone who has supported us on our journey until now and for a long way ahead.
