Back to Trail Tales

Several years ago, our founder John Connelly traveled to Nepal with Kumar Karakheti, founder and lead guide or Journeys Nepal. A Nepalese native who now lives primarily in Colorado, Kumar has become a good friend of Oboz, as well as a trusted boot tester. He and his guides and porters wear our footwear, and he sent us this suite of images from his diverse outdoor adventures.

Kumar leads regular treks and climbs in Nepal—info on his website—and he’s also a terrific human full of optimism, cheer, and a love of the wild. Follow Kumar on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
