Pasang Sherpa

Growing up seeing the gorgeous, big & beautiful mountain in the Himalayas. Since an early age, I have been drawn to outdoor adventures and traveling. Following my father's footstep, who is also a professional licensed trek guide and senior climber, I started traveling different parts of Nepal, exploring new places, taking photographs and making lots of new friends.

Continuing to fulfill the wish to travel more and share the experience with the travelers from around the world, I started helping out the travelers to suggest vacation trips in Nepal and started serving as a local travel specialist after getting engaged with NMMT. It's a great feeling of being a part of someone's happiest holiday memories.

How did you get involved in travel?

"I was always a curious and adventurous person. It was natural for me to increase my passion for traveling and cultural understanding at a young age. I have always appreciated having the option to talk to travelers, hearing their stories and where they are from. I went on my first journey with my father to Pokhara right after high school where I had an amazing experience, So whenever I had the opportunity I pack my bags and leave for the journey. From my perspective, there is never enough traveling one can do and I believe in the power of dreams.

Even though Nepal is a popular tourist destination already, the city has a lot to offer from a local point of view which I am excited to share with the travelers. To fulfill my dream I started helping out the travelers to suggest vacation trips in Nepal and started serving as a local travel specialist after getting engaged with NMMT.

Annapurna base camp , Nepal - Jan 15 - Jan 25, 2019

Traveler: Kenneth L. - Local specialist: Pasang Sherpa

I just returned from an 8 day trek to Annapurna Base Camp. It was outstanding! The whole process of booking was seamless. Pasang Sherpa was extremely responsive and customized my trip and made excellent recommendations including hotels. She checked in on me during my trip through my guide. I was greeted by my guide Lhakpa Chhetar Sherpa and Lakpa Sherpa, his colleague at Nepal Myths, at the airport. They are both so courteous and took me to my hotel on the first night in Khatmandu.

I just returned from an 8 day trek to Annapurna Base Camp. It was outstanding! The whole process of booking was seamless. Pasang Sherpa was extremely responsive and customized my trip and made excellent recommendations including hotels. She checked in on me during my trip through my guide. I was greeted by my guide Lhakpa Chhetar Sherpa and Lakpa Sherpa, his colleague at Nepal Myths, at the airport. They are both so courteous and took me to my hotel on the first night in Khatmandu. My guide made the trip extremely fun, and we even diverted from our itinerary and took side trips to see a Buddhist monastery and hot springs. I highly recommend trekking to ABC. The trek is moderate in difficulty and we trekked 5-7 hours each day, which was just right. The different landscapes that you cross are spectacular, from rhododendrum forests, bamboo forests, waterfalls, streams, and of course the snow capped peaks. Everything was great! I would highly recommend Nepal Myths and Mountain Trails as the outfit to choose when trekking in Nepal. I definitely want to go back!!
