The Sherpas of Everest Series: Mingma Tsiri Sherpa

Mingma Tsiri Sherpa has summited Everest 9 times in the last 9 years. He has also summited K2 in 1997!!! His ninth summit was on May 26, 2003 via the standard south east ridge route.

Mingma Tsiri Sherpa, a man that very few know his name or how to spell it, is clearly one of the very best H.A. climbers in the world...

Mingma Tsiri Sherpa first summited Everest via the standard north east ridge route on May 12th, 1995 with the Taiwan expedition. His next summit came on May 10th, 1996 again with an expedition from Taiwan but this time via the standard south east ridge route. His brother Nima Gombu Sherpa was on the Summit with Mingma Tsiri and with Mr Gau!

In 1997, he returned to Everest on the Adventure Consultants expedition led by Guy Cotter. He summited on May 23, 1997 via the standard south east ridge route. In 1998, he was back on the north side for his 4th summit again via the standard North East Ridge route with the Japanese this time.

In 1999, he summited on May 5, 1999 with his brother Ang Tsering Sherpa, while assisting the Goran Kropp Expedition via the standard north east ridge route. In 2000, he summited for the 6th time back on the north side with the Japanese again on May 17, 2000. He has when on to Summit two more times, to make 8 summits of Everest in 8 years !!!!

Did we mention that he summited K2 on 7/28/97 with the Japanese via the west face? He is from Rolwaling Boding Dolakha District in Solukhumbu. He is currently a mountain guide. He now lives in Kathmandu.
