The Sherpa people live in the most mountainous region of Nepal; they have become heavily influenced by Westerners who employ them while trying to conquer Mount Everest. This worksheet helps students discover the history and life of the Sherpa people. It concludes with students developing their own views on whether these influences are positive or negative.

The impacts on the mountain are discussed with the support of a newspaper article. It explores how in the past the Sherpa people have cleared some 6500 pounds of debris left behind by explorers.

The final task is to combine the information gathered and design a suitable permanent settlement at Everest Base Camp taking into consideration the views of conflicting groups and the needs of the Sherpas and visitors.
