Phortse. Home to more Everest summiteers than anywhere else on earth.
Sherpas who live here are the backbone of nearly every expedition to the summit of the world.
Phortse is also home to the Khumbu Climbing Centre, founded by Jenni Lowe-Anker and Conrad Anker, to teach climbing skills that are vital to the safety of Sherpas during expeditions. Up until the creation of the centre, most Sherpas were climbing Everest without basic climbing skills, making their work even more dangerous.
From the construction of the KCC headquarters, at 3,800 metres, to Dumji, a Buddhist festival for the ages, these are the stories of Phortse.
