Sherpas & Staff
Sherpas & Staff
All of our full-service expeditions include sherpas for the group. We hire Sherpas and high altitude porters in a support capacity, and now have 23 of these very experienced, friendly, strong, helpful, and loyal people on our staff, including some of Nepal and Tibet's best climbers and some of Nepal's only women Sherpas. Some of our Sherpas have been to the summit of Everest more than 10 times.
One of our lady sherpas just became the first Nepalese woman to reach the summit of Ama Dablam, Pumori, and Cho Oyu. Many of our sherpas have personally assisted foreign climbers to the summits of more than ten of the highest peaks in the Himalaya. During our expedition they will be carrying group equipment such as tents, rope, food, and gas. They are also there to assist in any rescues, so the other team members do not have to give up their summit attempt to rescue a sick member
We have been working with the Tibetan Mountain School to educate and train extremely strong and helpful Tibetan climbers, staff, and cooks. They have climbed Everest, Cho Oyu, Shishapangma, Mustagata, Nojin Tangla and many other summits together with us. They are not only adept and fearless climbers, but they are also learning to cook and their English is getting pretty good. They were born and raised in Shegar, Tibet, a town which lies above 4000 metres. These are students from the Tibetan High-Altitude Mountain School, in Lhasa, which we have been working with continuously since 1998. To learn more about the school, please visit: www.xixabangma.com.
