We are currently connecting with Organizations and Companies worldwide to help support the Sherpa family community during their high season for income for the year.
Sherpas are a Nepalese ethnic group numbering around 150,000. They are renowned for their climbing skills and superior strength and endurance at high altitudes. Perhaps the most famous Sherpa was Tenzing Norgay, who in 1953 was one of the first two men — Edmund Hillary was the other — to climb Mount Everest.
What do they do?
Sherpas act as guides and porters, and do everything from carrying the loads to setting up the camps. They secure climbing routes, fix lines, ferry supplies and guide clients to the top of Everest and other Himalayan peaks.
How much are they paid?
Sherpas who lead or assist expeditions to Everest earn about $5,000 during Nepal’s two-month climbing season, well above the country’s $430 annual per capita household income. But to earn that money, Sherpas make multiple round trips, exposing them to great risk.
