Pemba Sherpa (26) works as a mountain guide in the Himalaya regions of Nepal. Through his work he built many international friendships and keeps in touch via social media channels. When he is not guiding visitors across majestic passes and valleys, he lives in Kathmandu or his native Khumbu to teach ice climbing. Pemba Sherpa is one of the many connecting links between traditional mountain knowledge and the world.
