Gather round your computer, smartphone, tablet, or other device and settle in for this short documentary, which tells the tale of one of the most famous and beloved figures to ever climb Mt. Everest. Before he retired a few years back, Apa Sherpa had 21 successful summits of the mountain on his resume, which at the time was a record. But more than that, this amazing man whom I’ve had the privilege to meet, is an inspiration for all of the other Sherpas who climb and work on Everest today. Here, you’ll get to meet the man himself, who is working to create a better future for the Sherpa people through education and economic opportunity.
