To commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the first ascent of Mt. Everest by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgey Sherpa, we have named this year's Eco Everest Expedition in honour of this important day.
This year also the expedition is being led by my son Dawa Steven Sherpa and as always he will continue his clean up campaign.
Furthermore, he has also been nominated by Expedition Operators Association of Nepal as one of the two task force members responsible for overseeing the rope fixing and coordinating summit schedules of the various expeditions on Mt. Everest and Mt. Lhotse. I hope that by coordinating and communicating between the teams we will be able to avoid most of the congestion and thereby reduce accidents and deaths.
This year, Eco Everest Diamond Jubilee Celebration Expedition has two teams with a total of 22 members and 38 sherpas and Cooks. Under Dawa Steven's leadership our Expedition Doctor and Base camp Manager is Dr. Nima Namgyal Sherpa, our Sirdar is Naga Dorjee Sherpa and Head Cook is Mr. Chandra Tamang. We have 25 Climbing Sherpas in total and 11 Base Camp and Camp 2 cooks.

Asian Trekking's Celebration of 30th Anniversary:
Completing the year 2012, was a landmark for Asian Trekking. It marked the completion of our 30 year journey since being established in 1982.
To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Asian Trekking in adventure tourism, we organised a tree plantation programme followed by a picnic on 30th Dec 2012 at Lakhuri Bhanjyang, above Kathmandu Valley. Among our 122 staffs (office and permanent field staff) most of them were present on the occasion.
On the occasion we felicitated, with certificates and rewards, our staffs who have been with us since the beginning in 1982. I feel proud to mention that these loyal and hard working staff are Suk Bahadur Ale (Sukre), Kali Bahadur Basnet (Kalu), Mingmar Tamang, Bhai Kaji Tamang (Maila Tamang) and Bala Bahadur Magar (Maila Magar). And, to my great surprise and honour, the field staff presented me with a mini stupa as a "token of love." It is because of our staffs' hard work, honesty, passion and dedication that Asian Trekking is where it is today.
An interaction program between office staff and field staffs were also held on that day. Various topics were discussed such as improvement in Asian Trekking’s services, welfare of the staffs, upgrading equipment to meet the existing requirement, required training for the climbing guide as well as trekking guides, cooks, kitchen boy etc. Though we completed 30 years, we are excitedly looking forward to the next 30 years.
Established in 1982 by Ang Tshering Sherpa, Asian Trekking continues to maintain high standards of professionalism and quality services catering to needs of the discerning traveler: individuals, families, friends. Ang Tshering’s son, Dawa Steven Sherpa, as Managing Director of Asian Trekking and organizer of the successful Eco Everest Expeditions, oversees the daily operation of all Asian Trekking treks and expeditions in Nepal and Tibet.
Ang Tshering and Dawa Steven are invited around the world to share their experiences, views and opinions on a range of issues, including mountaineering, trekking, climate change and environmental protection. Following links allows you to download their presentations.
