Trekking in Nepal
We at SherpaTrek have a lot to tell you about, with first-hand accounts from our guide Pema Dorje Sherpa, including an active weblog of our preparations and deployment on our next Nepal trekking experience this fall. SherpaTrek offers exhaustive background content on travel to Nepal, Trekking in Nepal and the sights and sounds you'll encounter there. Pema Dorje Sherpa is instrumental to our behind-the-scenes insight into life in Nepal, and we showcase his accomplishments as a guide and we whole-heartedly recommend his services for your journey to the storied Kingdom of Nepal.
It is no simple matter setting out for an excursion to the Mt. Everest base camp in the Sagarmatha National Park or arranging a trek to get up close and personal with Annapurna above Pokhara. You'll find it invaluable learning the right-of-way rules with yaks (hint: yaks win), getting advance warning of the surreal Dasain bloodletting festival, and knowing your way around yetis and land-roaming leeches during the monsoons. We are continually expanding and updating our coverage of Nepal trekking, and the SherpaTrek Weblog will follow all of our new encounters and entertaining stories that our guide Pema Sherpa shares with us.
Mountain Grabbers, the producers of SherpaTrek, have been to Nepal and they'll never be the same. Richard Christiansen, President of Mountain Grabbers, trekked the Himalayas in 2001 and immediately felt a connection with the Sherpa people. He felt a fire to share their genuine charm with the rest of the world and to create meaningful economic opportunities for them. With Mountain Grabbers he has established a line of hiking gear fit for Himalayan trails that is made in Nepal by Sherpa craftsmen. He and his family were also moved to be a sponsor for the education in the United States of Nawang Sherpa, Pema's daughter. Rich and the rest of Mountain Grabbers have since made a personal bond with the people and culture of Nepal.
