IMG Guide Greg Vernovage had the privilege of meeting a Nepalese VIP earlier this week:
“On February 20th, I was honored to meet with His Excellency Shankar Prasad Sharma, the Nepalese Ambassador to the United States.
The event was held by the Nepal Seattle Society to represent the Visit Nepal 2011 promotion. On this special night I spoke with the Ambassador about tourism in Nepal as well as my experiences while climbing in the Himalaya. The night was capped off with a documentary titled: “Sherpas – The True Heroes Of Mount Everest.” Nice people, great footage of Mount Everest and a look at what some of the Sherpa do for everyone who climbs Mount Everest.”
