So I started the trekking field from 14 years old as porter and cook staff. After working for 4 years on trekking field then I was interested on mountaineering field. As my whole family was on the same field and they were even impressed my by hard work in trekking field. So on 1998 my uncle Dorjee Sherpa took me for climbing Mera Peak(6400m) as a climbing sherpa which was my first success summit on peak. This was a great achievement for me and thanks to my uncle who took me for climbing Mera Peak as on those days it was very difficult to find for the work of climbing sherpa as there used to be very less expedition on those days. So on the same year my uncle gave me again one expedition for Mt. Cho oyu(8201m) which was my first over 8000m mountain experience. So on September,1998 I summited Cho oyu with a 60 years old client which was also my second great achievement.

So after climbing these two mountain than I have got some knowledge and technique to climb mountain on 18 years old. Than after these achievement I had more interest for climbing more mountains. So I keep on working hard on these field. On 1999 and 2000 I went to summit the Mt Everest but it was unsuccessful due to the bad weather. As those days there wasn’t the technology for forecasting the weather and even there wasn’t good communication. But I hadn’t lost my hope for the summit again so On 2001 I went for the summit Everest than on May 22,2001 I had successfully summited the Mt. Everest for the first time which was a great achievement for my mountaineering career.

On 2012 I was a guide of Chinese and Sweden group to Mt. Manaslu(8163m) in which a destroying avalanche occurred when we were on Camp 2. As the avalanche started from below Camp 4 which swept all the Camp 3 group. As I was on Camp 2 so there was little effect of avalanche in my camp but we weren’t harm by that. As all the group of Camp 3 were swept till Camp 2 so I took my team sherpa for the rescue of Camp 3 group member. So we did rescue from 5 am- 3pm for 31 people in which 10 was found died whereas 2 were missing and 19 was injured badly and we contact immediately for the helicopter rescue for the injured person and pick up the dead bodies. So I left the Manaslu Expedition unsuccessful and return back.

After the mega earthquake on 25th,26th April and 12th May destroyed many places in Nepal. But there are many places in Nepal which are not destroyed and many places which are reconstructed already. Lots of fake news are out about Nepal. In fact Nepal is still very safe to climb, trek and tour. Their success will help world’s climbers to believe for safe climbing in Nepal again. To show Nepal is still safe for climbing and Trekking after earthquake 2015 so they(Tashi Sherpa,Nima Tenji Sherpa and Dawa Gyalje Sherpa) made plan for The First Nepalese Team in Rolwaling for First Ascent to successfully complete 3 new peak ascents.
