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!
