Delicious and heart-healting Himalayan cuisine
Our ancestors originally came from eastern Tibet, crossing the Nangpa La pass at 5,900 m (19,100 ft), about five centuries ago. The word "Sherpa" literally means people from the east. They settled in the Solu-Khumbu region of Nepal, the southern gateway to Mt Everest. Given our heritage, we practice the Tibetan form of Buddhism.
