Yes, the man in the picture, Lhakpa Sherpa, a mountain guide and once a porter in the Nepal Himalaya, is all about us. He is the leader behind Yak Expeditions.
Honestly speaking, Lhakpa has never been to school like many sherpas. He was involved in helping his father and family. He started working at the age of 18 in the Himalayas. Having worked for nearly more than 15 years in the mountain for many other travel companies in different roles (porter, Kitchen Staff, Sirdar and climbing guide), he was loved by almost everyone in the team and even by the clients.
Despite the lack of education, Lhakpa established his own travel company with the help of friends from Finland and France. His courage, humbleness and experience was the great advantage in his life.
He has participated in different Himalayan expeditions. He is lucky enough to have travelled around the world and one of his great experiences includes his work experience in PETZL France, the leading company to manufacture mountain equipment in the world.
Now, he organizes the trips in Nepal Himalaya. Yak Expeditions have been closely working with clients from different French-speaking nations and other European countries.
When it comes to organizing treks in Nepal Himalaya, he and his team assure that their clients have the best moments in Nepal. Getting back safely from the mountain is his first priority. At the same time, he makes sure that his team is well paid, well insured and above all, they are respected for their hard work. He had lived the life of porters, and he knows how hard it is.
The entire Yak Expeditions team are aware of the impacts of travel on the environment and our society, so we respect our mountains, our people and our culture in every trip we organize. We love to travel in small groups and share our stories & experiences.
