Marcus Cotton grew up in a traditional, Buckinghamshire farming village in England. He began his career in insurance at Lloyds of London, but soon moved to Nepal to pursue his conservation interests. He was working to protect the environment in Nepal with sustainable community development at the same time our very own Olga Murray was establishing NYF. Marcus is now the owner of Tiger Mountain Pokhara Lodge, a sustainable hotel in Nepal focused on lifting the community around it while offering guests a rich experience in the country’s trekking capital. His long history of working within the culture offers NYF a valuable trove of knowledge and connection. We’re honored to have him join us on the advisory board.
