Everyone who has ever heard of Mt. Everest has heard of Tenzing Norgay. The famous Sherpa who was the first, alongside Sir Edmund Hillary, to summit the worlds tallest peak.
Since then there have countless Sherpa's who have given their lives carrying food, supplies and even clients on this mountain. During our trek to Everest Base Camp we had our own Sherpa, Shir, that without his help we are not certain we would have made it to EBC with energy to spare.
This is a small tribute to the men and women who make everyone's trek in the Himalaya's possible. Thank You for helping us all enjoy this beautiful mountain range!
