The way Phurba led the route on the jagged and serrated rocky ridge of hazardous Reo Purgyil, made me believe that there is hardly any other Sherpa around, more technically gifted than Phurba. His courage, risk appetite and technical abilities are exceptional. I have been with Phurba on few more technical mountains like Shivling, Thalay Sagar and Changuch, and he never ceased to surprise me with his technical brilliance. And now he comes with more maturity and leadership capability. A true friend the on mountain, however challenging it may be.
Phurba Daju has been a strong pillar of support in all our mountaineering expeditions. It’s because of his dedication and climbing insights and experiences that my husband, Late Pradeep C. Sahoo and I had the privilege of becoming one of the oldest couples to scale Mt. Everest(2016). His concern and care for all the Climbers and co- sherpas during climbing expeditions is praiseworthy. I thank him for being with Pradeep during his first attempt of Mt Jongsong (E) in Sikkim and Mt. Plateau of Saser group. Most importantly I will be ever grateful to him for rescuing me from the death zone above 8000 mts during our Mt Everest expedition and saving my life. I had developed hypoxia and collapsed. In that life-threatening conditions, he courageously helped me cross the borderline of death. I have no words to praise him and offer my gratitude.
