Meet The Team
Let's go to new heights together!
At Fresh Tracks Trekking & Photography, we take pride in having a team of highly skilled and experienced Sherpas who have spent their lives in the Everest region. Our Sherpas are native to the area and have an intimate knowledge of the terrain, weather patterns, and cultural significance of the places you'll be visiting. Our Sherpa guides have decades of experience leading treks in the Khumbu region, so you can rest assured that you are in good hands.
We believe that our Sherpa team is what sets us apart from other trekking companies. They have a unique ability to impart their knowledge and wisdom of the mountains, and they take immense pride in sharing their culture with our clients. They are friendly, hospitable, and dedicated to making sure you have a safe and enjoyable trekking experience. Our team has a deep respect for their local environment, and they practice the leave-no-trace philosophy while on the trail.
