Sherpa people are an ethnic group of people dwelling in the Everest stretch and Himalayan legends or the legends of Tall.

Sherpas of Nepal live in the Solu-Khumbu district in the hinterland of the Himalayas, the oldest community of which, settled themselves in the Pangboche village. This area consists of Khumbuat 12,000 to 14,000 feet, and Solu at an elevation of 8,000 to 10,000 feet. According to Sherpa beliefs, the tribe emigrated to Nepal from the Kham region of eastern Tibet.

Historians, however, advocate that they were nomadic herders who were driven out of their original homeland in eastern Tibet by the warlike populace during the 12th and 15th centuries. They wandered to the locale around Tingri but skirmishes with the local inhabitants caused them to relocate to new pastures.

They crossed the Himalayas and settled peacefully in their present homeland in northeastern Nepal. It is deemed that these ethnic people traveled to the Solu – Khumbu region from Tibet over 1000 years ago in the 15th century. During those times, they made their living as traders, herders and farmers. Sherpas are majorly Buddhists and they believe that the mountains are the homes of enlightened deities. Belonging to the ancient Nyingma, or Red Hat, sect of Tibetan Buddhism, their practice is a mixture of Buddhism and animism.
