Monthly Talk: Interactive sesstion with World Record Holder Mountaineer Mr. Apa Sherpa.

The Public Relations Committee of
Nepalese Association in Southeast America (NASeA)
Extends a cordial invitation to the interactive program with:
World Record Holder Mountaineer Mr. Apa Sherpa.

Saturday, April 18, 2015
Time: 8:00 PM EST
Conference Call Phone No. (605) 562-0020; ID: 122-152-689

Theme: Life Lessons from a World Record Holder on Mt. Everest

Mr. Lakpa Tenzing Sherpa (a.k.a. Apa, also nicknamed “Super Sherpa), holds the world record for climbing Mount Everest successfully 21 times, and also a few unsuccessful attempts. He was born and raised in Thame, a village in the Everest region of Nepal. He got the first opportunity to climb Mt. Everest in 1990 at the age of 30 although he had worked with several expedition teams before that. He retired in 2011 to take care of his family and lives in Utah. Had he continued, he would have reached the peak many more times. Apa is an epitome of courage, endurance and dogged determination.

Apa runs a foundation called Apa Sherpa Foundation dedicated to enhance the livelihoods of Nepalese people, especially Sherpas who have limited employment opportunities other than climbing high altitude mountains. He has also worked with many others to raise awareness about climate change. He was a part of the team that brought down five tonnes of mountain trash that includes parts of a crashed helicopter, tin cans and climbing material. Unfortunately during this expedition, one of his friends and a fellow Sherpa, Lhakpa Nuru, was swept away in an avalanche on May 7, 2009, and died.

Apa also led the first expedition to complete the Great Himalaya Trail, a 1,700-kilometre (1,050-mile) trek spanning the entire length of the Nepalese Himalayas traversing some of the world’s most rugged landscapes 20 days before the stipulated time. He has kindly agreed to share his life experience in the NASeA conference call.

Please do not miss this opportunity to interact with Apa Sherpa. Following his talk, he will entertain questions.
