My Hero Tenji Sherpa – Peer Grossmann
“I could simply say now – Tenji is an excellent mountain guide of the Himalaya and 7 times Everest summiter including once without O2 ! For me, Tenji embodies a new, young and knowledgeable generation of mountain guides I was lucky and was with Tenji on Lobuche, I was with him all alone on Island Peak and on Ama Dablam and yes I would entrust my life to him today with blindfolded eyes without hesitation. Without exaggerating – but I have never experienced in my life such a young person, who knows so sensitive, accurate and knowledgeable always exactly what you just need on the mountain, how you feel right now and how he can help you if necessary! His physical and also spiritual strength, which he gives to his companion, I can not describe with words. I would not like to leave another, and actually much more important thing, unmentioned here in any case. Tenji knows what he is doing. He has more experience, knowledge and skills in the mountains than I would ever have believed such a young person . Thank you Tenji – you made me experience Nepal and the Himalayas. I can really only give everyone the following advice: You want to follow the “freedom idea” and explore Nepal and the Himalayas ALONE? – because you think you can?! Please don’t do it! Join people like Tenji and I promise you – you will experience, breathe and feel the Himalayas – AND – you will come back home safely.
