Our Story 1953 to 2021

The world is a book, and people who don’t travel read only one page. Similarly, the seed of Last Frontiers was sown when one person decided to take a chance and explore areas of the world that were previously not explored. 

The story of Last Frontiers starts with Mr. Pasang Phutar Sherpa 1953, the person who sowed the seeds of what today would be known as one of the best travel companies in Nepal. Pasang, born in the village of Namche Solukhumbu, was surely not the founder of this company, but his enthusiasm in exploration, adventure and traveling helped him plant the seed of which his predictors would raise. Pasang was able to take part in many of the expeditions to the top ten mountains of the world.


He started his exploration with the tallest mountain of them all, Mount Everest, in the expedition of 1952. The Swiss Foundation for Alpine Research expedition’s primary aim was to find a way to summit everest from the southern route. This was where his journey began.

The Birth of a Company

Mr. Pasang Phutar Sherpa was surely an adventurous person. However, there was only so much exploring he could do in a lifetime. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

As with the saying, Pasang’s son, Mingma Dorgee Sherpa, was also influenced by his father's interest and enthusiasm in adventure and exploration. Seeing Mr. Pasang go off on expeditions to places that were rarely explored, influenced him to become an explorer himself. In 1984
Last Frontiers was born.

Ever since 1984, Mingma Dorji Sherpa has seen ups and downs in the industry, challenges and changes, and being resilience and innovative.  In the last 35 years, he has established boutique lodge named Chhahari Retreat.  He is also the founder of Nepal's first 90 point scorer of Coffee in blind assessment, the coffee farm is named Lekali Coffee.
