Our Sherpa Adventure Gear Flagship Store nears completion
The new Sherpa Adventure Gear Flagship Store continues to develop as most of the inside finished and the outside nearly ready to go. With a projected opening in late June, the building should prove to be a beautiful addition to Durbar Marg in Kathmandu.

The building will feature 4,500 square feet of retail space on two levels for both our soft goods and hard goods for climbing and trekking. It will also have our corporate offices, a bed and breakfast, an upstairs terrace restaurant (with a grand view of the mountains and the Royal Palace Museum) and coffee shop, parking garage, and our research and development center.

We'll post more updates with opening dates and more pictures as we get our new store ready to go!
