Pemba is originally from Kharikhola, a village that lies along the traditional trekking route from Jiri into the Khumbu (Everest Region). An experienced trekking and climbing guide, Pempa enjoys his job because, in his words, “it gives me the opportunity to… serve the foreign clients by representing the hospitality and natural beauty of our nation.” He has lead treks throughout Nepal including Annapurna, Everest, Manaslu, and Makalu Regions. Pemba is also an accomplished climber summiting Mera Peak, Island Peak, Yala Peak, Lobuche Peak, and Makalu in Nepal. He has also climbed Shishapangma, and led treks in Tibet and reached the South Col of Everest from the Nepal side. Pemba has completed training in ice climbing as well as his guide certification. When not in the mountains he enjoys spending time with his family, visiting new places, and reading historical books. Pemba says, “I am in this field since long time. Till now all of my clients are very satisfied,” and he hopes, “that you take a memorable trek with me.”
