Pasang Tendi Sherpa

Pasang Ten­di Sher­pa was born in 1983 in Khem­balung, a remote vil­lage in the hid­den val­ley of Makalu Barun Nation­al Park. Fol­low­ing the foot­steps of his father, he start­ed trekking and moun­taineer­ing at an ear­ly age of 13. His expe­ri­ence comes not just from grow­ing up in the moun­tains, though it’s an advan­tage for any moun­taineer. He is one of the few Nepalis who has accom­plished a Diplo­ma in Moun­tain Guide (2011), cer­ti­fied by the IFMGA/UIAGM. He has also com­plet­ed Long­line Heli­copter Res­cue Train­ing in Switzer­land. He has scaled many renowned sum­mits in the Andes, Europe, Nepal, Tibet & USA. So far, he has led 11 suc­cess­ful expe­di­tions to the Mt. Ever­est Sum­mit from both the North and South side. He worked for the Moun­tain Mad­ness Ever­est Expe­di­tions in 2007 and 2008, and in 2007 he sum­mit­ted Ever­est twice in one week. Moun­tain Mad­ness is very impor­tant to Ten­di since his father Kham­su Sher­pa worked with Mad­ness founder Scott Fis­ch­er in the Khum­bu. He is very keen on shar­ing his exper­tise of the Himalayan cul­ture, mag­nif­i­cent moun­taineer­ing, unique expe­ri­ences and some untold sto­ries of the Himalayas to those who are fas­ci­nat­ed by adven­ture, wilder­ness and of course the mountains!
