Mingma Sherpa, first that has done the 14 'ochomiles' of the earth and a barcelonista admirer of Leo Messi, has visited the Camp Nou and the Museum of the Barça

Mingma Sherpa, the first sherpa that has achieved the peak of the 14 'ochomiles' of the Earth, has visited the Museum of the FC Barcelona and has enjoyed with the Tour Experience, where has had the opportunity to know the big moments of the history of the Barcelona club and to see the Camp Nou. Mingma Sherpa Is a recognised barcelonista and a big admirer of Leo Messi, and has been able to see closely the four Balloons and the three Boots of Gold that are exposed in the Museum.

"Messi is a very good player and very known all over the world. Has a lot of luck to play in the Barça and the Barça has a lot of luck to have it to him", explained Mingma Sherpa, that has remained very surprised with all what has seen: "Never it had imagined a Museum like this neither in my dreams. The Barça is a very big club. Come here and see this museum is something very surprising for somebody like me".

The 14 peaks of more than 8.000 metres

In May of the 2011, Mingma Sherpa turned into the first sherpa that has topped the 14 mountains of more than 8.000 metres, in the peak of the Kangchenjunga (8.586 m), the third higher of the Earth. In that occasion accompanied it the Catalan mountaineer Óscar Cadiach, that remained to the doors of his aim by a technical problem, but that it could finally do the summit of this mythical mountain in 2013. During that first promotion to the Kangchenjunga, Cadiach filmed the film 'Further of the Kumbhakarna', a homage to the village sherpa and to the path of the first Nepalese that has attained to do the 14 'ochomiles' of the Himalaya.

Cadiach Defines to Mingma Sherpa like a man "respected by his village that has supported it and ensalzado for doing his hero. It is a sherpa different, intelligent, that has struggled out of nowhere, tracing back the family of 6 brothers. To the age of 12 years, lost to his father and put to work loading already with 25 kg in the back. Afterwards it converted goalkeeper of the expeditions, later guides and finally sherpa of height. His career has been meteoric and a role model. Has an only charisma. I remained admired of his simplicity and humility".
