The History

Pasang Lhamu Sherpa

On April 22, 1993, Pasang Lhamu Sherpa created mountaineering history by becoming the first Nepalese woman to blaze a trail to the summit of Mt. Everest, the highest peak in the world. Pasang Lhamu’s achievement has not only proved that Nepalese women are as brave and strong as their men, but also shown their determined and resolute character. Pasang Lhamu was extremely committed to her dream, the reason why she succeeded and, in so doing, did her nation and her people proud. For many Nepalese women, Pasang Lhamu is a fugue that they will try and emulate for a long, long time.
The morning of April 22, 1993, was bright and clear and remained and so till Pasang reached the top of the 8,848 m. peak with 5 Sherpas, Sonam Tshering Sherpa, Lhakpa Noru Sherpa, Pemba Dorje Sherpa and Dawa Tashi Sherpa. Meanwhile, a member of the team and five times Everest Sumitter, Sherpa Sonam Tshering got seriously sick at south summit and despite Pasang Lhamu’s efforts to help did not survive his illness. While descending from the summit, tragedy struck the team. The weather, as often happens in the mountains, suddenly turned bad, causing to lose her life on the south summit. She was fully aware of the peril, but that did not deter Pasang from getting to her goal, even if it meant sacrificing her life.

For achieving what no other Nepalese woman had achieved before her, Pasang Lhamu was posthumously honored by her country in various ways.

She was the very first woman to be decorated with the “Nepal Tara (Star)” by His Majesty the King. The National Youth Foundation conferred the 1993-94 Youth Excellence Award on her. Similarly, in order to commemorate her feat, a life-size statue of Pasang Lhamu was erected at Bouddha, Chuchepati; a postage stamp was issued in her name; the Government of Nepal renamed Jasamba Himal (7,315 m) in the Mahalangur Range as Pasang Lhamu Peak; the Ministry of Agriculture named a special strain of wheat as Pasang Lhamu wheat; the Pasang Lhamu Memorial Hall was established in Dhulabari of Jhapa district in east Nepal; and the 117- Km Trishuli-Dunche road was named the Pasang Lhamu Highway.
