Meet the Sherpa who Climbed Everest

During the Raj-era, British explorers discovered a little-known peak in the Nepal region, which eventually revealed itself as the world's highest peak, Mount Everest, named after Surveyor-General Sir George Everest. Referred to as Sagarmatha by the Nepali and Chomolungma by the Tibetans, Everest has been a revered challenge for climbers worldwide. Sherpas, who migrated from Eastern Tibet to the Solu-Khumbu Valley in search of better prospects, played a crucial role in the early explorations and have since become integral to Everest expeditions. Namche Bazaar serves as a significant gateway to the Sherpa settlements in the Solu-Khumbu Valley, where they have established a new life with high altitude farming, weaving, and animal rearing.
