Khumbu Shangrila Agency discover our history

Our little story

It was on returning from an expedition to the Himlung Himal in 2004 that René Tomio (a High Mountain Guide friend) and Jacques tell Tashi Sherpa and Ang Tshering Sherpa that they should create their agency.

For many years Tashi and Ang worked as “Sherpas” in a big Nepalese trek agency. Moreover, they speak and write perfectly French and English.

They were convinced that they were quite capable of running a trekking agency. Their friend and cousin Pasang will also be adventurous. Two other Sherpas Mig and Emilie will also work for a few years at the agency. This is the origin of Khumbu Shangrila.

Today in 2018 the Agency is in its 12th year. In 11 years we organized:

1
Treks

with 572 Customers

1
treks peaks

 with 394 guests on 6000 m peaks

1
Expeditions

with 148 customers on 7000 and 8000 m summits

1
Major Crossings

including 2 integral crossings of the Himalayan range of Nepal.

Pictured is Ang Phurba Sherpa (who died at the age of 99 in 2012). Ang Phurba is the grandfather of Pasang Dawa Tsering Sherpa and Ang Tshering Sherpa.

In the 1953 expedition of the first Everest ascent by Hillary and Tensing, Ang Phuba was the factor.

At that time there was no modern means of communication and the information was “transmitted” on foot by the mailman. When Tensing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary descended from the summit of Everest, Hillary told Ang Phurba to go to Kathmandu as soon as possible to inform the King of Nepal that the first ascent of Everest had just been completed .

The trek between Kathmandu and Everest Base Camp through the Jiri Valley requires 18 days of walking and a bus day. Ang Phurba joined Kathmandu in 5 days.

Ang Tshering Sherpa’s other grandfather, Ang Gyalgen Sherpa, was a Sherpa in Pierre Mazeaud’s first French expedition that successfully climbed Everest on October 15, 1978. A beautiful family story dedicated to the Himalayan mountains.

"Tashi was profoundly good, honest and of a rare kindness, not to speak of his humanity" wrote us Laurence who knew it during a trek.

We all share his opinion.

Jacques

He is the administrator of the Agency's website.

Passionate about mountain and video, he makes videos of the website which allows him to travel through Nepal in search of new routes.With Pasang he answers the emails you send us.
