- Sherpa TravelDirector/Trip Leader, present
I am founder, director and trip leader for SHERPA TRAVEL INC. in Lee Vining, California.
See my website at www.sherpa-travel.com
I specialize in designing and operating high quality tours in Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan, India in South Asia, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam in Southeast Asia and China and Mongolia in Northeast Asia.
My focus is ecotourism services that support stewardship of the natural beauty and diversity of Nepal, and the conservation of traditional cultures, while enhancing the health of the community and sustainability of the culture.
I am licensed guide, mountaineer with basic, advance and rescue training.
I climbed 27,000feet almost to the top of Everest (2,050ft. short of the summit);
I can consult and lead climbing trips to the base camp, but not allowed to climb as I am married.
Leading trips and cooking has been my practical profession most of my life.
