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.
