From the highest reaches of the Himalayas, the Sherpa people lead the world in mountaineering with warmth, grace and good humour. There is no better palce on earth for testing equipment - and character.
WHAT IT MEANS TO BE SHERPA
Founded in 2003 by Tashi Sherpa, Sherpa Adventure Gear manufacturers apparel for mountain and outdoor adventures in Nepal.
The company employs over 150 people in Nepal, and in 2009, furthered its local commitment when it opened its downtown Kathmandu headquarters, which houses its offices, a flagship store and The Terrace bed and breakfast. Two more stores opened in 2010, in Namche and Pokhara, Nepal. Here at Snow+Rock we're now proud to bring this brand to our stores in the UK.
MADE IN NEPAL. JUST LIKE US
Saying "Made in Nepal" means the world to us socially, economically and environmentally. We are Sherpa-owned, Sherpa-run, and pleased to report that most of our garments and hats come to you from our production centre in Kathmandu.
WALKING GENTLY ON THE EARTH
From the summit of Everest, one now looks down on shrinking glaciers. So we demand the latest in eco-friendly fabrics and packaging, and strive to reduce our footprint in shipping and manufacturing.
