Climb Mt. Baker – please join us for an adventurous experience of a lifetime. The climb will be guided by some of the most experienced and world re-known Sherpa Mountaineers.
After the successful trip of the first Nepali Mt. Baker (KomoKulsan) team in the summer of 2022, we are planning to organize three trips in 2023 due to high demand from both Nepali and non-Nepali communities here in the States and from abroad. This climb is designed for novice climbers, and we expect the spots to be filled quickly so early registration is highly encouraged and requested.
Climb to contribute is a 3 day and 2-night trip to climb Mt. Baker. All the funds raised will be earmarked toward building the NW Sherpa Community Center in the Greater Seattle area. The trip will be led by Mr. Lakpa Rita Sherpa, who was the first Sherpa to summit 7 summits and widely regarded as the best Sirdar for Everest Expedition. Mr. Lakpa Rita Sherpa will be supported by IFMGA guides Mr. Jangbu Sherpa and Mr. PhurbaGyaljen Sherpa, and Mr. Jigme Sherpa who has climbed local PNW mountains before. Rising to 3,286 meters (10,781 feet) in elevation, Mount Baker is the third highest peak in Washington and the fifth highest in the Cascade Range.
Northwest Sherpa Association is a non-profit organization, founded in 2003 with members from various parts of the Northwest region, including Vancouver B.C, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana. The mission of NWSA is to preserve and promote Sherpa language, religion, tradition, culture and unite all the Sherpas residing in the Pacific Northwest of the United States of America including Oregon, Montana, Idaho, and Vancouver B.C., Canada. This is our annual fund drive to support the “NW Sherpa Community Center” project in the greater Seattle area.
