In his own words, " I was born in-and lived most of my life in-Pangboche, a small villiage in the Solo-Khumbu region of Nepal. Through Wilderness Experience, I have been working with treks for most of my life, and my climbing career started when I was late in my teens. Although I owe a great deal of my mountain climbing income and success to Adventure Consultants, out of NZ, I have worked with many expeditions throughout the years.  I have traveled and worked for many expeditions around the world.  For many years, I have traveled to Norway to guide on the Galdhoepiggen Mountain (the highest mountain in Norway). I currently live in the U.S. with my wife, Michelle Gregory. While I am still adjusting to my new life in Buffalo, NY, I am working on my English and starting the long road to IFMGA certification. I suspect I will be climbing for years to come."

Ang Dorje will probably be always known to the masses at the sirdar of the Rob Hall 1996 Everest Expedition, but to those close to him, they know him better. He is one of the most highly respected climbers on the mountain. 

Chhuldim Ang Dorjee Sherpa will be back on Everest in Spring 2005, behind the scenles as usual working so others can take a shot at the top... More on Chhuldim Ang Dorjee Sherpa soon!
