Founder and Managing director
My family roots are in Solukhumbu, Everest region. My career in the trekking-business started when i was very young. First as a porter, and over the years I became Sirdar. I am a fully licensed trekking & expedition guide since 1990. Since 1990 I have done camp- and tea house trekking all over Nepal. I climbed Himalchuli (7893m) being one of the leading climbing Sherpa’s of the expedition. Over the years I led countless expeditions to trekking peaks in Nepal. Most famous peaks are: Island Peak (6189m), Mera Peak (6476m), Lobuche East Peak (6119m), Chulu West Peak (6419m), Pisang Peak (6091m) and Thorung Peak (6144m).
I have led trips to all corners of The Himalayas with generous humor, reliability, flexibility and safety. I love to show you the beautiful Himalayas and walk on the mountain paths to enjoy the panoramic views. During your stay I would like to share my Nepali culture with you.
I speak English, Sherpa, Hindi, and a few words German and Dutch.
When I am not trekking I like to help to local community. In the Sherpa community I help people to perform our traditional Sherpa culture and rituals for various personal occasions.
For the Tashi Delek foundation I am the volunteer manager in Nepal. With the foundation we support our local farmer community in the Solukhumbu. The main focus is agricultural knowledge and water efficiency. The main goal is making the local community self-sufficient so that they will no longer be dependent on external financial aid.
