THE STORY:

I have been traveling to and guiding in the Everest region of Nepal for the last 12 years. During this time I have grown very close to my Sirdar (Head Sherpa) and his family as I use them for logistics and support during all of my treks and climbs in Nepal. Pemba Tenzing, his wife Nima, and their three children, own a small lodge located in the remote village of Pheriche which sits along the trail to Mt. Everest at an elevation of 14,000'.

There are a number of lodges in Pheriche with Pemba's being one of the smaller, more 'rustic' lodges available. Over the past decade I have assisted with maintenance and improvements to the lodge, including building additional rooms, indoor toilets and a shower, and upgrading the solar energy system the lodge uses for power. Most recently, we improved the chimney and stove which is used for central heating.

On April 25th, during the tragic earthquake Nepal suffered, the Thamserku View Lodge was heavily damaged and providing lodging for guests is no longer possible. The lodge provides the majority of the family's income, so the success of the lodge has a substantial financial impact on their lives and livelihood. It is imperative that the lodge be rebuilt, repaired, and improved so that Pemba and his family can resume operations and provide clean, comfortable lodging for customers trekking through the Everest region.

Please help me get the Thamserku View Lodge up and running. Any assistance you can provide is a big step toward opening the doors and helping my Sherpa family. Thank you!
