They are well known as trekking and mountaineering guides and widely used as high altitude porters by expedition teams. Their religion is Buddhist.
The trek to Everest is incomplete without being influenced by the culture of Sherpa people of the Khumbu region. Ever since the first successful ascent of Mt. Everest (8848m) by Sir Edmund Hillary the whole community benefited from the influx of tourist who come to enjoy the unique landscape of the high mountain that has been the subject of many books and research. Named it, all famous explorers and mountaineers have traded the path. Ever since the peak XV was spotted as the highest point on earth the whole region came into international focus. Though the mountain is named Sagarmatha by the Nepalese and Chomolongma by the Tibetan (Chinese) yet the name of Sir George Everest after whom the name was given has become synonymous with the peak itself and the region. After the British Swiss made 2 serious attempt to reach the summit; in 1952 Raymond Lambert with Tenzing reached 8500 meter in their second attempt. As a result they prepared unwittingly Teng Sherpa for the British expedition to help them summit the peak of Everest in 1953 for the first time in the history of human being. Since then the attention on Everest have kept on increasing every year.
