Since ’94, the Himalayan Suit has set the standard in thin air environments. To relaunch it in 2023, we worked someone who does the same, team athlete Dawa Yangzum Sherpa
Dawa Yangzum Sherpa
Dawa Yangzum Sherpa grew up in a Himalayan village with no electricity or running water. But by age 9, she knew she would someday summit Mount Everest. She accomplished her dream at age 21, before going on to become the first Nepali woman, and one of just over 100 women worldwide, to earn certification as an IFMGA Guide.
Dawa was part of the first all-female team from Nepal to reach the summit of K2. She also made a first ascent on Mount Langdung in her home Rolwaling Valley and has attempted Kanchenjunga, the world's third highest peak.
