Apart from scaling the summit of the mountains and peaks in Sikkim and other Himalayan regions, what satisfies him most is that many of his students who have learned under him have scaled many of the highest mountains of Sikkim and the world including the mighty Mt.

Nowadays he works along with his son Mingma in their home office and runs a family travel and tourism business. He can sleep with ease in tents or in a comfortable hotel room. He is a passionate sports person and loves to play and watch all sports. He works tirelessly for his clients and their satisfaction is his ultimate goal.
