Chhoki Sherpa, a permanent resident of Gaurishankar Rural Municipality 9, Dolakha District, is a young mountaineer who climbed Mt. Everest in the spring of 2018 with the message, â€śBuddha was born in Nepalâ€ť. She started the journey of her first expedition from Lumbini, the birth place of Lord Buddha to deliver the message of peace from the top of the world. Before climbing Everest, she climbed Ramdung Peak (5,925m) in 2017. She is also multi-lingual, speaking Nepali, English and Korean.
Born to lead trekking and expeditions, she has been connected with Gurkha Encounters since November 2018 as a Trekking & Expedition Guide. We are hopeful that her experience in mountain tourism in Nepal and high enthusiasm will help and facilitate our guests to plan their tour programmes in a better way.
