Pasang Lhamu Sherpa

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 Review: Fozzils Bowls

    By Mike Hawkins It has been a long day – one of the most demanding climbing days you have ever experienced. Your legs are wrecked. Your back is sore and you have small bruises on your hips from your hipbelt. You have sunscreen caked into every nook and cranny, but even that didn’t keep you […]

  • Gear Review: The North Face Phantom 50 pack

    By Mike Hawkins “Man, this is a really great pack…” I said it over and over for months until my wife had finally had enough of it. She had to get one for herself.  While 50 liters is a little small for most multi-day mountaineering and winter ski tours, the small size is plenty versatile […]
