Grandfather Mountain will welcome a Nepalese sherpa Aug. 18 for an exciting presentation on the nature and people of Nepal.
For more than 15 years, Pema Tshiri Sherpa has led mountaineering and trekking excursions in the Himalayas and is the only trek leader who has personally walked every mile of the roughly 960-mile Great Himalaya Trail.
From offices in Kathmandu, he and his crew lead expeditions in the popular areas of Mount Everest and Annapurna as well as more remote areas including the Kangchenjunga region, Arun Valley and Makalu, and others.
He is passionate about humanitarian causes as well as conserving the mountain ecology of Nepal.
Through slides and video, the sherpa will provide a glimpse into Nepal and its people. Grandfather Mountain is one of numerous stops he will make this summer as he tours the United States making presentations by invitation.
The event will be held from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 18 at the Grandfather Mountain Nature Museum Auditorium.
Admission is $10 for the general public and $5 for students. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. for those attending the presentation.
For Grandfather Mountain guests who are already visiting the park, admission to the program is included in the entrance fee.
