Sherpa, part of Elevation Weekend, premieres Sat Apr 23 at 9/8c.
Sherpa Sneak Peek
Sherpa share why they love and appreciate their work as mountaineers on Mount Everest despite the dangers.
Love of the Job
Sherpas hold a tenuous group meeting at Everest Base Camp immediately after the devastating avalanche in April 2014.
Sherpa Group Meeting
Sherpas hold a ceremony to ask Mount Everest permission to climb before embarking on their journey.
Permission to Climb
Sherpa does not mean what most of the Western world believes. Sherpas are mountain climbers, but an ethnic group of people with their own culture and beliefs.
