Ngawang, who also goes by Chhering, is originally from the upper Tsum Valley, a remote valley with a rich cultural history settled by people of Tibetan origin. The valley is accessible only by foot via a trail that branches off the Around Manaslu trail. Chhering lives in Kathmandu now, but enjoys opportunities as a trekking guide that take him back to his home valley. In addition to leading treks in the Tsum Valley and around Manaslu, Chhering has also led treks in the Langtang, and Annapurna Regions. In addition to trekking guide training Chhering has also completed a course in avalanche rescue. In his free time Chhering enjoys reading and hanging out with his friends.
