Deepak was born in 1973 to a family of subsistence farmers and cattle herders in Nepal. At the age of 13, he moved to the capital, Kathmandu and was employed in a progression of wildly different professions that eventually lead him to the tourism industry at the age of 15. He formed Divine International Explore & Treks in 2000, his own travel company that continues to be a leader in the Nepal Tourism industry. He later set up Divine Foundation in Nepal to promote educational and cultural links between the people of Nepal and Singapore, and to encourage support of local projects in Nepal. He currently resides in Singapore with his wife, Alice, and son Adam, running the Divine offices in both Singapore and Nepal.
