What do you know about the Sherpa?
It’s a brand for mountain folks like us, that everyone knows. Most people are even aware that the inspirators of the brand name are porters in the Himalayas. Fewer people know, however, that originally it is a name of an ethnicity (people living in the highest parts of Nepal), not a profession. It is just that over time the outstanding skills of the Sherpa people, who function(ed) as porters and guides in high altitudes of the Himalayas, have become one with the name. Now any porter-guide is called a sherpa.
So, you were clear about this? Well done! But did you know that there are sherpas in Europe as well?
