Phurba was the Sherpa team leader on my May 2017 Everest Expedition. His great leadership, relentless work ethic, experience and willingness to put the client’s safety and needs above all else played an enormous role in making me the first American to summit the mountain in 2017. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to work with a highly experienced professional on any Himalayan Adventure. His double-digit number of Everest Summits speaks for itself. He’s a beast on the mountain and working with his team he will ensure tents, oxygen, equipment etc. will be where they need to be in order to provide a client with the highest probability of summiting. I highly recommend 8000 Expeditions.
