At 14 years old, Mingma began carrying loads up the mountains of the Khumbu where he grew up. With 20 years of experience as a porter and now a licensed trekking guide for the last 12 years, Mingma knows the mountains well. He has led trekking peak climbs of Mera and Island Peak, and treks in Khumbu (Everest Region), Langtang, Annapurna, and upper Mustang. In addition to his extensive Himalayan experience, Mingma has climbed in the Alps. From 2009-2012 he lived in Austria and Germany, and he returned to Europe in 2016, traveling through Switzerland. Trekking and travel are twin passions for Mingma. He enjoys both nature and meeting new people.

My partner and I only had time for a 6-day trek so we chose Mingma as our guide for the Tamang Heritage Trail and Pasang joined as our porter. Mingma was very professional and we always felt we were in good hands during our trip! Mingma was patient, knowledgeable, trustworthy, positive, and overall a fun travel companion. My partner got sick on the first day of the trek and Mingma made sure he had what he needed and adjusted the pace of our treking for the first day. Highly recommend!
Mingma is an exceptional professional and a very positive person. We are extremely satisfied with his service. He has enhanced our trekking experience tremendously. We would be more then happy to recommend him to anyone.
