Ang Temba Sherpa's souvenir cupboard

Oxygen bottles, ice axe, goggles, water bottles, ice screws and even a rock from the summit of Mt Everest are on display here at Highland Sherpa lodge in Pangboche. The 1953 rope and bottle are from the first ascent of Everest by the Hilary/Tenzing expedition. Beginning at the age of 18, Temba participated in almost 20 Everest expeditions, many as head sirdar, having first summitted at age 22. He is now focussed on running his lodge and some humanitarian work in the Mustang region with US climber, Pete Athans.
