Mountains are the source of inspiration for those who brave the bone chilling temperature, endless snowfields, bottomless crevasses, thin layer of oxygen, steep rock walls and unpredictable weather, and make their way to the top of the world.
This journey to the top of the world is next to impossible without the support of Sherpas, sons and daughters of the great Himalayas.. true lifelines of high altitude mountaineering.
Sherpas pave the road in snowfields, bridge the gap on crevasses with ladders, cook the healthiest meals for mountaineers in possibly the harshest weather on the higher altitudes.
They are the rescuers, they are the guides, they are friends, they are the Sherpas!
They know Himalaya better than anyone else.
Nowadays, Sherpas have ventured into several other fields and are triumphing it like never before. Umesh Zirpe, the renowned mountaineer, who has spent significant time with Sherpas, has shed a light on the lives of such Sherpas who have carved their ways from extreme destitute to reaching remarkable heights of glories. Experience the interesting world of Mountain-Men Sherpa.
