Chhepal Sherpa comes from the village of Khunde in the Solo Khumbu region of Nepal. A short walk from Namche Bazar, Khunde lies at the center of one of the world’s most established trekking routes, as climbers and trekkers pass through en route to conquer or merely admire Mount Everest. Chhepal has 14 years of experience leading treks through his home Khumbu region and throughout Nepal, leading ascents of the trekking peaks such as Island Peak and Lobuche peak, as well as treks around Manaslu, to Makalu basecamp, Langtang, Annapurna, and upper Mustang. A licensed trekking guide, Chhepal has also completed a leadership training course. He has been guiding for New Zealand based Everest Treks, and when he’s not leading treks he loves to play football (soccer) with friends or travel to meet new people and see new places.
