Mingma holding up a copy of the Sherpa Adventure Gear catalogue where he is featured on the cover.
Mingma is 32 and from Namche Bazaar, the capital of the Sherpa people. He went to the famous Hillary School in Khumjung. Mingma's parents still live in a tiny house in Namche and his father was also a trekking guide, so taking care of visitors to the Khumbu Valley is in his blood. Mingma worked for five years in the famous Italian research pyramid at Lobuche. He speaks fluent English, Sherpa, and Nepali, and knows every rock, building, and wild animal along the Khumbu trail. He is sponsored by sherpa adventure gear.
