Event Details

We'll chat to Pradeep Bashyal and Ankit Babu Adhikari, authors of Sherpa: Stories of Life and Death from the Forgotten Guardians of Everest to share the story of the people who live and work on the roof of the world.

They'll dive into their culture pre- and post-mountaineering revolution, their evolution as climbing crusaders with previously unpublished stories from the most notable and incredible sherpas of the last 50 years and hear about their existence at the edge of life and death.
