Kipa Sherpa

Kipa Sherpa

Age: 40
Nationality: Nepal
Home Location: Kathmandu
Occupation: Mountaineer, Guide

Kipa was born and grew up in Nepal's Solu Khumbu and has been climbing all his life. With ascents of Nepal's highest peaks, including Everest (which he has summited three times, including the southwest face), Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, Dhaulagiri and most trekking peaks, Kipa's mountaineering skills, safety record and affable nature make him an invaluable member of Team Everest ‘03.

Kipa has become Gary's "left-hand man" and a close personal friend. They have trekked and climbed together extensively, most recently during the Everest 2001 “Anything is Possible” expedition, and have presented lectures about Nepal and Everest throughout the USA. Kipa and his wife Pasang have four children.
