our values


The Sherpa people hail from the high valleys of the Himalayas, but the traits Sherpas are found far beyond the borders of Nepal. As Sherpas:

 

  • We believe in keeping a joyful heart. We strive to be as warm, welcoming and gracious to strangers as we are to our friends.
  • We believe that loyalty and integrity say much more about a person than his pocketbook.
  • We believe in a strong sense of community, whether we are guiding a team up a mountain, or helping our neighbors at home.
  • We believe in leaving the earth a better place than when we arrived.
  • We believe in passing down the wisdom and traditions of our elders.
  • We believe it is possible to be humble and reserved, while still displaying confidence and skill.
  • We believe our quiet strength and determined resilience will take us far beyond the summit.
  • Regardless of where you call home, we hope you too are proud to join us in saying,
  • “We Are Sherpa.”

OUR ENDLESS KNOT LOGO

For hundreds of years, Sherpas have searched for the most beautiful ways to stay warm, dry and comfortable in the highest mountains on earth. So today,
naturally, we embrace the latest technical materials and designs, and we test our gear in the Himalayas for your greater well-being, we also weave into
every garment a rich heritage of time-honored beliefs and humility. It is an odyssey of the heart.

A Sherpa Story

Sherpa Adventure Gear


Sherpa Adventure Gear was founded in May of 2003 by Tashi Sherpa, as a living memorial to the unsung heroes of Mt. Everest. For decades, climbers have always been grateful for having a Sherpa companion on the treacherous slopes of the Himalayas. It is the Sherpa who makes the route, carries the load and sets the ropes to the top and back.

In this spirit, Sherpa Adventure Gear seeks to honor the legendary high-altitude climbers by creating adventure gear that earns their praises.

And we are focused on providing economic and social stability to the people of Nepal through steady employment, quality working conditions and educational opportunities for future generations.

Each season we grow. But at the core we will always be a small company with a simple vision of doing business in the inimitable way of the Sherpas: One step at a time, helping each other on the climb up, and never losing sight of the destination.
