About Sherpa Adventure Gear

Sherpa Adventure Gear was founded in 2003 by Tashi Sherpa, who was inspired to start the company when he discovered that his uncle was one of the Sherpa on Sir Edmund Hilary’s celebrated first-ever expedition to the top of Mount Everest in 1953. Sherpa Adventure Gear—which manufacturers apparel for mountain adventures—honors the unsung Sherpa heroes who make high altitude Himalayan climbs possible for others by carrying the loads, laying the ropes and guiding the way. Sherpa athlete-ambassadors test and help design Sherpa Adventure Gear products, most of which are manufactured in Nepal in company-owned facilities. Sherpa Adventure Gear employs over 150 people in Nepal, and in 2009, furthered its local commitment when it opened the flagship Sherpa Gear House store and The Terrace bed and breakfast to welcome trekkers and climbers to Kathmandu. The Renton, Washington-based company also gives back to the Sherpa community by donating a portion of every sale to organizations that benefit their future, such as the Sherpa Education Fund.
