A living legend and inspiration in mountaineering world, Dawa Sherpa who holds a world record for summiting Mt Everest (North-South) in 20 hours and 15 minutes, has recently joined hands with Himalayan Glacier. Dawa Sherpa became the world’s first ever speed climber to have scaled Mt. Everest from the North Base Camp in the Tibet side and descended to South Base Camp in Nepal.
Dawa is from Tamakhani Village in the Solukhumbu district of Nepal. Having being brought up in the Himalayan region of the country, he has always had a great passion for climbing and adventure. Dawa’s first ascent was in 1998 when he conquered Mt. Everest, the world’s highest peak from the Tibetan side. Since then he has climbed Mt. Everest multiple times from different directions along with other Himalayas including Kanchenjunga, Makalu and Ama Dablam.
Dawa has strong leadership skills and is an effective motivator on tougher days on the trail. He has completed his basic and advanced mountaineering training, first aid training and trekking guide training in Nepal. While on the mountain, he is a confident climbing guide with strong technical skills and certainly someone to trust to make the right decision. He is most at home when walking along the trails and climbing the Himalayas! Himalayan Glacier is proud to have Dawa in its team.
