Tashi Tenzing, three-time Everest trekker will be sharing his stories at this event.

'Stories from Everest: An Evening with Tashi Tenzing' will focus on Tenzing's personal stories of his world-famous grandfather and his Sherpa ancestry, as well as his own feats of climbing Everest.

If Everest is on your bucket list, this event is for you.


As the grandson of Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, who completed the first ascent of Mt Everest with Sir Edmund Hillary in 1953, climbing is in Tashi's blood. He first summited Everest in 1997 after a failed attempt four years earlier that tragically ended in the death of his uncle and climbing partner. Tashi again reached Everest's peak in 2002 and 2007, and over the years has climbed many of the world's highest peaks and lead a number of expedition firsts.

The event will see Tashi share his inspiring stories and unravel the truth about why so many attempt to climb the world's highest mountain. Tashi will also provide an overview of his specially designed Himalayan trekking itineraries and will be available for one-on-one trekking advice.

Having just read Norgay Tenzing's (His father) autobio, I'm there!

It sounds very interesting! But is it an obligation free talk? Or does the travel agent really push you to buy a tour?
