Pasang Sherpa: Rowing For The Environment

Pasang Sherpa

Pasang Sherpa

Pasang Sherpa, from Nepal, is the newest rower to join the team(Rowing For The Environment). Aged 25, she currently resides in Boulder, having traveled there to visit friends and family, she stayed for the Rocky Mountains, which remind her of home. Having a passion for the outdoors and adventure, Pasang has been involved in a number of them during her life. Working as the first female mountaineering instructor in Nepal, in 2006 she climbed to the summit of Nangpai Gosum, a previously unclimbed peak that is 7321 meters high. Following that impressive accomplishment, she successfully climbed Mt. Everest as part of a Clean-Up Expedition to gather the trash left by other climbers who had previously made the expedition to the top. And now, with no prior rowing experience, Pasang has become part of the Rowing for the Environment team! She sees this as a chance to help the environment, and as part of that same something that drove her on her climb up Everest, her love for adventure!
