Program

The youngest person to ever reach Everest's summit was a Sherpa boy named Temba Tsheri who was just 16 when he reached the peak in 2001. One of the most famous Sherpa’s, though, is Tenzing Norgay who, alongside Sir Edmund Hilary, became the first person to reach the mountain’s summit in 1953.

It is famously said that Norgay did everything that Sir Edmund Hilary did, but whilst carrying a tremendous weight at the same time. If you would like to experience the life of a Sherpa and become a real Sherpa porter on an Everest Base Camp trek, then Nepal Hiking Pvt. Ltd. now offers the experience to the most adventurous customers who are booked to enjoy an adventure.

You will be given a basket or backpack of trekking supplies to carry on your trek in order to experience the Sherpa porter life. The basket or backpack you are given will weigh up to 25 kilograms and in order to successfully complete the challenge, you will be required to carry the basket for at least 30 minutes.

Once you have enjoyed your experience as a Sherpa porter and successfully completed the challenge, you will receive a certificate from the company confirming that you completed your Sherpa porter mission. You will also be gifted with a t-shirt from the company which reads, "I was a Sherpa Porter in Nepal."

Think you can manage to carry the basket of supplies for a full 30 minutes? Will you be strong enough? Who knows, maybe the fun challenge during your time at Everest Base Camp could be the start of a brand new career path!
