Tashi Sherpa

I have travelled to different parts of Nepal. I have grown seeing these big mountains but it has never stopped surprising me. For the past 7years, It has always been a great experience for me. Travelling to a new place, making new friends, experiencing the culture and the wildlife. This place has a lot to offer. Now I have started working with mine Father. He is a successful travel entrepreneur and has been organizing trips all over Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. It is a great feeling making others dreams plans turn into reality.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Trekking, Heli Tours, Cultural Sightseeing Tours, Day Tours, Group departure Treks, Treks in Bhutan."

How did you get involved in travel?

"The passion for exploring new places. Since I was a child I used to go on hiking with my father. He used to take me and my brother with him every weekend. we used to pack our own lunch box in our bag pack and climb up the hills. right after, I finished my high school. I got a chance to go on a trekking with my uncle. I was 16 years old at that time. It was a whole new experience for me. that's how I got my self in to travel."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"My unique travel experience was my first trek. I can still remember it clearly. It was a whole new experience for me. It was a camping trek in Everest region from lower part of SoluKhumbu to the Everest Base camp. It was a long camp every day and we had a very tight schedule. we walked for around 9-10 hours every day and some days even more. But the best part of the trek was, after all those hard walking days when we reached the top of the Kala Patthar. It was a great feeling, everyone was crying including me. "Tears of joy" seeing everyone happy was a very satisfying. last day when we reached Lukla we stayed at the lodge. No camping finally some hot shower after so many days. since it was the last day of our trek we prepared a cake for everyone and we sang and danced all night. That was my first trekking experience and I would never forget that."

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek: Nepal's Classic Trek - 8 Days · Nepal - Sep 14 - Sep 22, 2019

Traveler: Rudi L. - Local specialist: Tashi Sherpa

Well organised, friendly, professional from start to finish. The entire NMMT team was very helpful, and our guide, Darfuri Sherpa provided a great hiking experience. The weather was a challenge with flights, but the team made a great effort to ensure that we managed to experience everything we wanted to. Would highly recommend them.

Ghorepani poonhill trek · Nepal - Aug 11 - Aug 16, 2019

Traveler: Kiin K. - Local specialist: Tashi Sherpa

My first trekking on Poonhill with kimkim was fantastic from A to Z.
They managed all my itinerary according to my personnel schedual even though sudden circumstance happened due to heavy rain.
My guide, Mr. Angello and Pasang were really specialist to make me comfortable all the time even I was very bigginer on that.
In addition my coordinators, Mr. Tash and his father and his brother, they have absolutely professional attitude to their visitors.
Once again I sincerely would like to recommend someone who want to try trekking in Nepal to be with kimkim. You are never disappointed.

Nepal in one word is......AMAZING! My husband and I were heading towards India for a wedding but wanted to make sure we could include at least a short trip to Nepal. Tashi and his team made it possible and we were able to see Kathmandu as well as hike up to see Everest.

Firstly, the whole organisation and process was incredibly easy. Tashi understood quickly what we wanted and organised it within days. His response time, even with the time difference, was within hours even.

Nepal in one word is......AMAZING! My husband and I were heading towards India for a wedding but wanted to make sure we could include at least a short trip to Nepal. Tashi and his team made it possible and we were able to see Kathmandu as well as hike up to see Everest.

Firstly, the whole organisation and process was incredibly easy. Tashi understood quickly what we wanted and organised it within days. His response time, even with the time difference, was within hours even.

Once we arrived, he was there with the driver to pick us up. Explained the entire next steps and made sure everything with our hotel was fine. He even organised a "to-go" breakfast from our hotel for the next morning at 4:30am (since heading to Lukla that morning). That morning he brought us to the airport, explained the process, and kept in contact with our guides during the whole trek to make sure everything was running smoothly. Once we flew back to Kathmandu from Lukla, we had a few more hours until our next flight, and he used the time to show us another beautiful site, and we got to enjoy a nice tea together there. His detailed dedication to the guests is impeccable and highly appreciated. I've never felt so well taken care of by any tour company.

The trek itself was stunning and perfectly planned. We arrived in Lukla around mid-morning (after a few flight delays). Our guide, Mingma Gyaljen, and sherpa, Fu Renji were waiting for us once we arrived. They then took us to a Teahouse for a quick tea and introductions. From there we hiked to Phadking. It was a beautiful hike. There we spent the evening at the Khumbu Traveller's Guest House. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming, and made sure we had everything we needed (tasty food too). The second day we hiked up to Namche Bazaar. What a beautiful hike! It gets a bit uphill the last part, so you need to take your time. Both guides were very attentive and adapted to our speeds when needed. During the hike up, we stopped at the Sagarmatha National Park's 3.140m view point to get our first view of Everest. Once at Namche, we stayed at the Shangrila Lodges right in the middle of the town with a great view of the area. It was pretty cold up there since it was January but we kept warm at the fire, and our guide made sure we had enough blankets. The host made some amazing homemade Momo's for us too! The next morning, our guide woke us up at 6am as the sky was clear so we could hike up further to see the surrounding mountain peaks. We hiked up about 30minutes to 3.555m to get a perfect view of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Tabuche and Amadablam and many more. We are so grateful to our brilliant guide and sherpa for suggesting it and taking us there! They both made sure we really enjoyed ourselves the entire trek.

Following that we hiked back to Lukla. There we stayed at the Sonam Lodge. The hosts made us feel like part of the family, and even came with us to the airport to make sure we had no issues.

The entire trip was more than any of our expectations and we definitely want to go back for a longer trek with the Tashi team. Thank you to Tashi, Mingma Gyaljen, Fu Renji, and the Teahouse hosts for the amazing experience!!
