Ngawang started working as a porter at the age of 14 in the Khumbu (Everest Region) of Nepal where he grew up. From those early years, his life took a detour into spirituality and Ngawang lived as a monk in the monastery at Lukla for nine years. During his years as a monk, he developed a talent for thanka painting, the religious paintings done on cloth or silk and hung in monasteries and homes. He has since left the monastic life and has been working as a trekking guide since 2007. As a guide, Ngawang has led treks all over the Khumbu (Everest), Annapurna, Upper Mustang, Langtang, and Dolpo Regions. He has lead climbs of various trekking peaks including both Island and Mera Peaks in the Khumbu Region.
