Woman Sherpa named adventurer of the year 2016

Last month Nat Geo named the woman sherpa Pasang Lhamu adventurer of the year 2016.

Check the video of the nominees.

“On April 25, 2015, Pasang Lhamu Sherpa Akita was an hour’s walk from Everest Base Camp when a 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal and triggered an avalanche on Everest. While teams of climbers evacuated the area and fled to safety, Pasang Lhamu hiked into the chaos to help the climbers left buried in the snow.”
