Tashi grew up in a village that is literally on the trek to Everest in the Khumbu Valley of Nepal.
He began his guiding and instructing career in 2012, and has since worked in a variety of settings including rock climbing in the Alps and Nepal, ice climbs and glacier travel on many 5000m to 8,000 m mountains.
Tashi is a certified UIAGM/IFMGA mountain guide and is the Sirdar or head climbing Sherpa for our Himalayan trips. He has climbed Everest 7 times, as well as ascents of peaks such as Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Baruntse and many more, often leading rope fixing duties. Tashi’s areas of focus for the last decade have been in high altitude mountaineering, expedition climbing, and technical alpine climbing, as well as mastering the art of guiding.
He often goes back to the Alps to continue training and practicing rescue scenarios and has climbed peaks such as the Aguille du Midi, Mt. Blanc, and Aguille du la Brenva.
He lives in Kathmandu, Nepal.
