Your Guide

I hail from Rolwaling in Nepal, and have been working in the tourism field for over eight years now. In spring 2012, I had the honour to climb Mt. Everest, my claim to fame being using a very old style pick axe. My next expedition coming up is Cho-Oyu and K2 this year, and if successful, will make it three 8000+ peaks.

I love the mountains, does not matter where in the world, and am so happy to be able to share the beauty of the Himalaya, and of course my stories

I am an Ultra Marathon High Altitude long distance runner. In 2010, I complete the 350 km Everest Sky Race and even stood 2nd in the competition.

I love rock climbing and have won national level competitions in Nepal. I am the first Nepali female to complete the Climbing Rescue Ranger training at Mt. Rainer (USA).

I am also a sponsored Athelete of Sherpa Adventure Gear.

  • Walking with an Everest Summiteer, rock climber, rescue technician, brand ambassador and global athlete.
  • Kathmandu in a very different light!

Dawa Yangzum now plans to summit Cho Oyu and then K2 this year. She has kindly consented to lead day hikes and overnights during weekends when she is free. You will see Nepal in a completely different light when you walk with her.

Hikes are pretty custom tailored and could go in any direction in the valley depending on whether its a strict day hike, or a overnighter. This will be developed in consultation with the clients.

She could be leading one of our 8000’ers of Kathmandu training hikes, or the LUNCH with NUNS, or our SUNSET hike!
