Teaching the Sherpas

I never thoughts about this before, but do Sherpas get any formal mountaineering training? Apparently, most of them do not. California State University, Sacramento professor Kevin Tatsugawa is trying to change that situation. He’s currently working to transform Nepali guides and porters into certified professionals through the Khumbu Climbing School in the Nepali village of Phortse. In addition, he’s working to form the Himalayan Rescue Association which aims to help climbers suffering from acute mountain sickness.

    Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.
