THAMSERKU EXPEDITION

"One of Nepali tourism's most successful and important entrepreneurs today."

AN EXTRAORDINARY MULTI-AWARD WINNING LEADER WITH THE PASSION TO NAVIGATE THE GREATEST SUMMITS

Sonam Sherpa is recognized as one of Nepali tourism’s most successful and important entrepreneurs today. His organizations have also earned several awards over the years and have grown exponentially. This comes as no surprise as Sonam’s work is deeply seated in his passion and respect for the Himalayas and his relationship with the same.

As a mountaineer and as a son of the Himalayas, he knows what outsiders should not miss when they are in Nepal . Some of Sonam’s mountaineering feats include climbing Europe’s highest peak Mount Blanc (1983) . Amongst other, he has also scaled Mount Thamserku (1987) in Nepal. It was after ascending Mt.Thamserku he decided to start a company named after the mountain.

From 1996 to 2011, Thamserku organized more than 400 major Expeditions and among those 60 / 70 sponsor Groups was from Europe. But due to global economic crisis on 2012, there was a break in sponsorship Expedition. On May 2015 Nepal earthquake, Sonam got injured and had to rest for 6 months. During these days, with his passion for mountaineering and experience of over 27 years, he pushed himself for restarting mountaineering and accordingly by 2022, with a new approach, Thamserku Expedition started organizing commercial Expeditions in the Himalayas of Nepal & Tibet and in Pakistan.

To addon to his mountaineering passion, he has conquered 6 of the 7 summits in 7 different continents of the world, and has plan to climb Mt Everest in 2023.
