#Episode 2 Incredible Sherpa: The Mountain Guides.

During this year’s May Day holiday, #Mount Everest is still congested at 2am# topped the trending list. Although the description may be exaggerated, the long queues of climbers waiting to ascend Mount Everest have still gathered curiosity and emotions among the public.


This year marks the 70th anniversary of the first human ascent of Mount Everest, and it has been 20 years since Chinese mountaineers began climbing the mountain. May is the start of the annual climbing season for Mount Everest, and an increasing number of people are attempting to climb the mountain every year. This endeavor is not only a physical fitness challenge, it’s also become an industry.
At the beginning of the mountaineering season, Sherpa porters start to go to Everest Base Camp at an altitude of 5,300 meters to deliver supplies for climbers. At the same time, they clean up the gravel and ice on the platform of the base camp before the arrival of customers, so as to facilitate the construction of camps and tents.



In addition, Sherpas have to be responsible for everything climbers need – including building toilets and shelters for eating.


After the client reaches the base camp, the Sherpas will take the client for about 20 days of adaptive training, and also pave the way to the summit.‍


Sherpas are renowned for their ability to carry huge loads on behalf of Western climbing teams.
Paving the road before climbing to the summit is not an easy task – it’s more like a battle squad in a war. Paving the road involves solving dangers for the main force in advance, building bridges when encountering pits, laying safety ropes, and looking for all risks in advance.


Sherpa, shown after scaling Everest for the 23rd time, completed a record 24th climb.
Next, let’s look at the conditions of each section. This mountaineer can climb up to 2 times during their stay, while the Sherpa may have to do the same ascent 20-30 times. 



On the summit of Mount Everest, the Sherpas have sacrificed so much, but why should they bear it?


Most Sherpas have no other livelihood activities, and mountaineering is the most profitable activity in the region. At the same time, mountaineering is also an important part of Nepal’s economy. Mountaineering companies hope to charge guests who want to climb to the top $100,000, while Sherpa guides only earn $5,000 for a two-month expedition, but this is already a remote area and that payment is ten times the average annual salary. Many Sherpas who climbed the mountain said: “I climbed the mountain so that my children would not have to climb the mountain in the future.” It is great to climb the peak bravely for the sake of dreams, but its more noble to live it with all your might.


However, the New York Times cited data from the Himalayan Database showing that from 1905 to the spring of 2022, 315 climbers died on Mount Everest, nearly one-third of whom were Sherpas. They need to be recognized for their heroic work and sacrifices. ‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍

但是《纽约时报》援引Himalayan Database的数据显示,从 1905 年到 2022 年春季有315名攀登者葬身珠峰,其中近三分之一是夏尔巴协作。获得同等的荣誉。同样是攀登珠峰。让我们不得不佩服。

There’s no better way to spice up a burger than with spicy kimchi. This fiery hot fermented Korean cabbage not only adds a wonderful kick, but the crunchy kimchi also imparts a nice textural flair.


French Foie Gras Burger

The word ‘gourmet’ comes from French. Why did the English language adopt a French word to describe food of high quality and people who like said good food? Cuz the French frickin’ invented the concept of culinary awesomeness. Give your burger a touch of haute cuisine with some foie gras – if you’re balling, add some on black truffles for the perfect final touch.


Chinese Roujiamo Burger

Oh snap. The Chinese already have their own burger! Whoa, it could possibly date back to the year 200BC, which predates the earliest known mention that historians have found for hamburgers in the Western world by nearly 2000 years. Bam, the Chinese actually invented burgers. Now excuse us while we go buy one of these awesome spiced minced pork morsels of joy.

印度Aloo Tikka汉堡

Well to start things off, the cow is sacred in India and beef isn’t very common on the menu. In order to localize and adapt to the country, McDonalds launched with a series of Indian-style vegetarian burgers. They featured an ‘aloo tikka’ patty made of boiled potatoes and peas seasoned with garlic, spices, and ginger and served it with a variety of chutneys.

好吧,开始吧, 牛在印度是神圣的,所以牛肉在菜单上并不常见。为了本地化和适应这个国家,麦当劳推出了一系列印度风格的素食汉堡。他们以煮烂的土豆和豌豆做的“aloo tikka”饼为特色,配以大蒜、香料和生姜,配上各种辣椒酱。

Incredible Sherpas: The Great Mountain Guides-Himalayan Heros


Recently, we‘’ve heard so many people talking and dreaming about summiting Mount Everest. While many people are applauding the heroes who climbed to the top of the mountain, how many people know about the Sherpas who silently paved the way with their lives? 



-The Sherpa people, whose name in Tibetan means “people from the east,” live on both sides of the Himalayan Mountains, but primarily in Nepal, with a minority scattered throughout China, India, and Bhutan. Their language is Sherpa, but they also use Tibetan script.


#Who is Sherpa?


Nowadays, Sherpa has two meanings. One refers to the ethnic group, and the other specifically refers to the Sherpa people who work for mountaineering teams in high-altitude climbing in the Himalayan region. 
In 1953, New Zealand climber Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay climbed Mount Everest, standing on top of the world for the first time in human history. Later, more and more climbers came to Nepal to climb Mount Everest and hired local people to transport supplies. They discovered that Sherpa people were not only very strong and polite but also very reliable. Since then, they have been willing to hire Sherpas as companions every time they climb Mount Everest. “I think that’s the moment when Sherpa people became Sherpas. It can be said that it was Mount Everest that made the world know about Sherpas. 
Sherpas have unique physical qualities, amazing lung capacity, and have achieved three “mosts”: the most successful summit of Mount Everest, the most number of anaerobic ascents, and also the most number of casualties on the mountain. It can be said that without Sherpa people, there would be no climbing of Mount Everest.
Nowadays, many Sherpa people make a living by helping explorers and wealthy people fulfill their dreams of climbing Mount Everest. Mount Everest, the highest peak in the world, with an altitude of 8,844.43 meters, is known as a sacred place in the hearts of countless people and the pursuit of many explorers. However, according to data, the ones constantly breaking records of reaching the summit of Mt. Everest are not explorers, but rather Sherpa people. 
The fastest person to reach the summit of Mount Everest was a Sherpa, taking only 8 hours and 10 minutes, while a professional climber needs three to four days for the same route. The person who has reached the summit of Mount Everest the most times is also a Sherpa, aged 52, who has summited 26 times.
In the eyes of Sherpas, Mount Everest is not a challenge but rather a job. They are the true conquerors of Mount Everest. Understanding the climbing patterns and routes of commercial mountaineering teams can give more insight into the collaborative role of Sherpa people in them. Please look forward to the next story, which will focus on the collaborative role of Sherpas in commercial mountaineering teams!
