Details

Come join Pemba Sherpa, long time CMC member and Adventure Travel Trip Leader, discuss his memoir, Bridging Worlds: A Sherpa's Story. 



 A Colorado Book Award Finalist, Pemba's book takes the reader on his life's journey from a poor remote Nepalese Villlage to accomplished mountaineer, expedition leader and successful U.S. businessman -- and back to Khumbu where his journey began to build a bridge, hydroelectric power plant and bring hundreds of thousands of dollars in earthquake relief to his native people. Pemba and his co-author, James McVey, will show a slide presentation and tell the story of the Sherpa peoople, the exceptional dangers they face as expedition workers in the Himalayas -- and the alarming state of the climbing industry on Mt. Everest today.



Pemba will bring food from his Nepalese restaurant in Boulder and sign copies of his book.
