I hail from Rolwaling in Nepal, and have been working in the tourism field for over eight years now. In spring 2012, I had the honour to climb Mt. Everest, my claim to fame being using a very old style pick axe. My next expedition coming up is Cho-Oyu and K2 this year, and if successful, will make it three 8000+ peaks.
I love the mountains, does not matter where in the world, and am so happy to be able to share the beauty of the Himalaya, and of course my stories
I am an Ultra Marathon High Altitude long distance runner. In 2010, I complete the 350 km Everest Sky Race and even stood 2nd in the competition.
I love rock climbing and have won national level competitions in Nepal. I am the first Nepali female to complete the Climbing Rescue Ranger training at Mt. Rainer (USA).
I am also a sponsored Athelete of Sherpa Adventure Gear.
