Furtemba Sherpa, World Tour Cyclist

"My name is Furtemba Sherpa, a Global Citizen. Originally, I am from a small village called Sankuasabha in Nepal. At the age of 26, I started world cycle tour with the cause of "World Peace and Environmental Protection." Since 2003, I had been cycling to 46 countries and intend to cycle 150 countries all together which should be done by 2020."

Furtemba Sherpa is the great-grandson of Tenzing Norgay, who first reached the summit of Mount Everest in 1953 alongside Sir Edmund Hillary. Conquering the Himalayas has been considered by most Sherpas in Nepal as the pinnacle of success, but Furtemba is embarking on his dream to become the first Sherpa to cycle around the globe to promote his message of World Peace and Environmental Protection.
