Hearing adventurous stories of his life, any adventure lover gets inspiration and would like to begin his/her journey very soon. He has fallen in the crevasse, fractures his bones, half buried his body in the snow, but like any Sherpa of the same region, he has mastered his skill and has become the true snow artist. We feel glory to find such climber/trekker for Himkala.
