Pasang Lhamu Sherpa

Guide: International, Washington

Born in Lukla, Nepal, Pasang Lhamu Sherpa has always been interested in climbing. However, she didn’t actually start climbing until 2003, after attending college in Kathmandu. In four short years, Pasang Lhamu has summited Everest from the Tibet side, Yala Peak, Nangpai Gusung, and Island Peak. She has also travelled to Italy and France to take mountaineering courses, climbing numerous peaks there as well. Today, in addition to working as an instructor and part time trekking guide, she is the primary care taker of her 14-year-old sister. In the summer of 2014, Pasang successfully summited K2 as part of the first female Sherpa team to make the ascent.

    Gear Spotlight: The Headlamp

    Words: Val Peckarsky Photo Credit: Cecily Breeding It has been said that if you don’t pack a headlamp on a trip, you are guaranteed to need one.
