About

Apa Sherpa

Apa Sherpa is the first man in the history to reach the top of the world 21 times. He shares the world record of the most summits of Everest. Apa is widely recognized to be one of the greatest living mountaineers.

Ironically, summiting Everest was never a goal for Apa. At 12 years of age, he first began working as an expedition porter to earn money following the untimely death of his father.
