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 Himalaya. He worked for nearly more than 15 years in 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 from the friends from Finland and France. His courage, humbleness and the experience was the great advantage in his life.
He already have participated in different Himalayan expeditions. He is lucky enough to have travel around the world and one of his great experiences includes his work experience in PETZL France, the leading company to manufacture mountain equipments in the world.
Now, he organises 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 organising treks in Nepal Himalaya, he and his team assures that their clients have the best moments in Nepal. Getting back safely from the mountain is his first priority. In 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 have lived the life of porters and he knows how hard it is.
The entire Yak Expeditions team are aware about the impacts of travel in environment and our society , so we respect our mountains, our people and our culture in every trip we organise. We love to travel in small groups. We want to share our stories and experiences. We love to know about our clients. We want you to get back to your home with a lot of happy moments and the next time, we travel together as a very good friend.
