Sherpa is Shortlisted for Boardman Tasker Award for Mountain Literature

We are very pleased to share that Sherpa, by Pradeep Bashyal & Ankit Babu Adhikari has been shortlisted for the Boardman Tasker Award for Mountain Literature.

The award recognises outstanding literature concerned with the mountain environment: books which will in turn challenge and inspire their readers, perhaps to climb or explore the world of mountains, perhaps to write or perhaps to look at the world in a different way. Sherpa is one of five incredible books on the shortlist – a fantastic achievement.

Sherpa tells the story of a small tribe of mountain people at the foothills of the Himalayas. They play a key role in guiding mountaineers up and down Everest, with only one simple task: keep everyone alive. This story dives into Sherpa culture, their story pre- and post- mountaineering revolution and tells of their existence at the snow-covered edge of life and death.
