About John

John Child is an American who fell in love with Nepal many years ago. As an MIS Director for a large consulting firm he dreamed of Nepal from his office.

In 1995 John started Friends in High Places in the US to promote Nepal as a travel destination with his business partner A.D. Sherpa's company, Friends in High Places in Nepal. It's been a wild ride, but he loves it and has expanded the company's reach to Bhutan, Tibet, and India. 

Today John spends summers in the US promoting Friends in High Places, but is in Kathmandu for most of the year, meeting groups and marketing trips.
