Tibetan Mountaineering Biographies

The PDF file below contains biographies for many of the Tibetan climbers that are from earlier Chinese expeditions, the Tibetan 14x8000 teams led by Samdrup, the Olympic Torch expedition, and the Tibet Mountaineering School in Lhasa.

This is a work in progress. We hope that expedition leaders to Everest and Cho Oyu can supplement this with updated information and photos for the Tibetan assistants that are employed by their teams. Items marked in red are in particular need of further review.
