Lobuche East Trip
I am an adventure guide with a company that operates trekking, peak climbing, mountaineering, jungle safari and other adventurous activities. I am a well-skilled and expert mountain climber. I offer visitors the chance to climb amongst the world’s highest peaks, trek into untamed wilderness areas or experience first-hand the wildlife and culture of mysterious lands. I love exploring isolated and enchanting areas that are off-the-beaten path.
I grew up in Makalu, Nepal. As my village had no school, I worked. In 2000, I was the leader of the Sherpa women’s expedition sponsored by Asian Trekking. I became the first Nepali woman to summit Mount Everest and return alive on May 18th, 2000. In 2001, I returned to the mountain where I met George Dijmarescu and joined with him to summit the mountain a second time in 2001. We married the next year and had a baby girl, Sunny. My Everest career was put on hold until I returned in 2003 with my 15-year-old sister to reach the summit for the third time. I have done it several times since then as well.
