Andrea Zimmermann-Sherpa & Norbu Sherpa

Andrea and Norbu firmly believe that everyone should visit the Himalayas once in his or her lifetime to see one of the world’s most stirring and breathtakingly beautiful regions of our planet with their authentic culture and traditions.

Andrea Zimmermann-Sherpa is a Swiss Attorney-at-law specializing in international sport law and Counsel for more than 10 years at the International Court of Arbitration for Sports in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Her passion as an elite athlete for the sport and the mountains encouraged her to climb numerous peaks in the Alps and the Himalaya. In 2016, she became the 9thSwiss Women to have reached the Top of the World together with her husband Norbu Sherpa, entering in the close circle of the Women Everest Summiteers. A success based on setting the right goals and timing, consistent preparation and trust.

Norbu Sherpa, Sirdar (Chef of the climbing Sherpas) during many years, seven times Everest Summiteer and more than 18 times on other numerous 8000-meter peaks and one of the main protagonist in the Swiss awarded documentary movie “Sherpas: the True Heroes of Mount Everest”, shares the vision to enriching the people’s living through promoting exclusive travels in the Himalaya.

Andrea and Norbu founded WILD YAK LUXURY exclusive travel agency as source of inspiration of the splendour of the Himalaya.

A Legacy of Philantropy

Beginning 2015, Andrea and Norbu have founded the Swiss non-profit organisation "The Butterfly Help Project" to support the education costs of the Sherpa families which have lost their husband/father in their hard work as climbing Sherpa in expeditions on high mountains of the Himalaya. Andrea and Norbu take in heart in supporting these wives and their children to pursue their education.

In April 2015, Andrea and Norbu were at 2 kilometres of the 7,8 Earthquake epicentre that has dramatically affected many regions of Nepal. Through their Association, they immediately organised relief for those regions. To date, they focus on rebuilding schools and bring a touch to support the improvement of education in the remote areas of Nepal.
