  • aka Chunu Mommy

Hailing from a poor Kathmandu family, Chunu began working to help support her family while she was just a forth grader. Despite the financial hardships,  when she heard about a women’s expedition being organized, she became inspired by the possibility of succeeding in adventure tourism to support her family. With FIWSE she was able to nurture her passion for the outdoors that she dreamt about during her long days of work. She reached the Everest summit on the 25th of May 2008.

Her caretaker nature sets her apart in the team. She is always the first person to notice is someone is hungry, worried or acting crazy. The team calls her Chunu Mommy.
