Growing up in Lukla, the gateway to Mt. Everest, Pema has seen thousands of tourists pass through her home village. Watching her father work with trekkers, Pema knew that the industry offered good jobs that could support a family and allow her to meet people from all over the world. Inspired by these opportunities, Pema began working as a lead guide in 2007 and has since led treks in the Everest, Annapurna, Langtang, and Helambu Regions. During her time as a trekking guide she has enjoyed visiting many beautiful places and has gained friends from all over the world. She enjoys teaching others about her own Sherpa (and Nepali) culture while at the same time learning about her client’s culture and home country. Pema says “I have been loving my job and I will continue [as long as] I have energy.” When not trekking in the mountains, Pema enjoys studying English, visiting new places, reading, and watching travel documentaries. Pema is a self-described, “energetic, talkative, responsible, hardworking, female trekking guide.” She looks forward to sharing her country and culture with you.

Our trek to EBC and Cho La Pass was absolutely incredible and it wouldn't have been the same without Pema as our guide. Being a local of Lukla, she was the perfect choice. Her knowledge of the area, the history and especially the people made our experience so much richer. It seemed as if she knew everyone, even in Kathmandu! This insider knowledge was so useful to us and she knew all the best/cheapest places to stay/buy things and all the little things we would not have known about otherwise. Having a female guide was also awesome, as every other guide we met was male, it was refreshing and incredible to share our experience with a pro female guide. We also really appreciated her help in Kathmandu and collecting us at the airport where we otherwise would have been very lost and confused! She went above and beyond for us before, during and after the trek, and even sorted us a last minute helicopter to Lukla when our flight was cancelled two days in a row! Thanks Pema! You're awesome! Would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone trekking in the Everest Region :)
