The Sherpa Heritage House, Khumjung

This exciting project has only been made possible through the vision of Pertemba Sherpa who is prepared to hand over his historic family home to be transformed into a living museum, conserving almost vanished Sherpa traditions for future generations of all nations. The House will be put into a  Community Trust, administered by Pertemba and his family, along with village elders, for the benefit of the whole community at Khumjung.
