Named for the pioneering climber Pasang Lhamu Sherpa – the first Nepalese woman to summit Mount Everest, who tragically died on the descent – the humanitarian Pasang Lhamu Foundation was established by her family in 1993 to help improve the living standards of Nepalese women and children. In 2022, the family launched Mountain Lodges Nepal, an arm of its Sherpa Hospitality Group run by Lhamu’s son, Namgyal Sherpa.
