  • Sonam Sherpa

    Born on 29th April 1961, Lakhpa Sonam Sherpa is recognized as one of Nepali tourism's most successful and important entrepreneurs today. He is currently the Managing Director of Thamserku Trekking, Executive Chairman of Yeti Airlines, and Managing Director of Yeti Mountain Home, deluxe mountain lodges in the Everest region, Nepal. His organizations have also earned several awards over the years and have grown exponentially. This comes as no surprise as Sonam's work is deeply seated in his passion and respect for the Himalayas and his relationship with the same: his late wife Pasang Lhamu Sherpa was the first Nepali woman to climb Everest in 1993, after which she lost her life on the mountain during the descent. As a former mountaineer, Sonam knows what mountaineers in Nepal want. And as a son of the Himalayas, he knows what outsiders should not miss when they are here. Some of Sonam's mountaineering feats include climbing Europe's highest peak Mount Blanc (1983) and South America's highest peak Acancagua (1999). Amongst other, he has also scaled Mount Annapurna I (1985), Mount Dhaulagiri (1986), Mount Thamserku (1987) in Nepal. It was after ascending Thamserku did he decide to start a company named after the mountain.

  • Namgyal Sherpa

    Namgyal provides leadership and steer to the Thamserku group and has recently guided the organisation through a period of significant change, modernizing the core whilst retaining the expertise and loyal staffing that provide the company’s USP. He is very much a hands-on director getting out on trek, working directly with field staff and clients to keep the organisation on focus and stimulate development of new products and services. Namgyal also works with numerous travel sector associations supporting the development of the travel and tourism sector in Nepal, building international partnerships and strategic alliances with key players in other sectors. This work is not only bringing tangible economic benefits but also strengthening awareness of responsible tourism and ecologically sustainable ideals. He was the Executive Board member of Trekking Agents Association of Nepal (TAAN), the national umbrella organization of trekking companies but is now concentrating on working on the Nepal Tourism Year 2011 effort. He is always looking forward to the next rewarding and challenging venture!
