Nepalese Sherpas in Tyrol

Jun 30, 2005 / alpMedia
27 Sherpas from Nepal are currently attending training courses at refuges in Austria's Tyrol province.
The three-month programme covers topics such as refuge management, hygiene, environmental protection, nature conservation, maintaining and improving trails, cooking and service. The training course is designed to teach standard alpine refuge management skills for use in other extreme mountain regions. 16 Nepalese Sherpas had received training in alpine tourism in Tyrol the previous year. The project was initiated by Tyrolean mountaineer Wolfgang Nairz and Nepal Hilfe Tirol.
