Nikki Trekking through Nepal

Nikki Trekking through Nepal

At SheFly, our mission is to help everyone answer nature's call - at work and at play. In our We Wear the Pants series, we feature the folks who go there -- who put our products to the test as part of their jobs. We share their stories and lived experiences in (and with) the wild.

Know someone who wears the pants we should talk to? Let us know in the comments below or share your story to our email hello@sheflyapparel.com!

Sometimes adventure calls and you just need to quit your desk job, pack up your life and head out on an incredible solo trip, and that’s exactly what Nikki, one of SheFly’s first models, is doing!



Nikki has been spending her past few years in Seattle working at a normal 9-5 job sprinkled with modeling gigs for awesome outdoor brands (including SheFly’s first official shoot). She knew she was ready for a new challenge and with Covid delaying any travel, Nikki decided this was the year to start a new life abroad. Nikki was born in Nepal and lived there until she was 8. Since moving to the US, she’s visited a few times, but this October she’ll be embarking on a new adventure.


Nikki is in Nepal to do a month of epic trekking through the majestic Himalayan mountains before beginning her year of teaching English in Thailand. While she has always loved going on hikes and backpacking, this will be Nikki’s first solo trekking trip.

While trekking through such high altitudes alone can be nerve-wracking, Nikki has done Everest Basecamp and because she knows Nepali, she feels extremely comfortable in this region. Trekking through this area includes backpacking hut to hut, allowing backpackers to stop for food and accommodation as they need. Nikki says she’ll be bringing minimal items to pack as lightly as possible with the essential backpacking gear and her SheFly Go There pants for an easy way to go on the go without removing her pack or dealing with the Himalayas' intense weather elements.

Nikki says she’s most excited to start her new life and build a community. She’ll be moving to Thailand, but is excited to go explore the immense beauty of her home country before and epically start her adventure. She’s excited to put herself out there and challenge herself in new ways, connect with new people, and explore a new area.
