Temba Tsheri Sherpa (Nepali: तेम्बा छिरी) is a Sherpa from Rolwaling Valley, Dolkha, Nepal. On May 23, 2001, at the age of 16 years, he became the youngest person to climb Mount Everest. He held the record of being the youngest successful climber until Jordan Romero achieved the ascent of Mount Everest on May 22, 2010. Romero was 13 years.
The youth, who was still in school, lost five fingers to frostbite while attempting to climb from the south side in 2000. He made his successful ascent from the north side (Tibet) of Mount Everest in 2001. Temba was climbing with the International Everest Expedition.
In an interview in 2015 he noted that he had lost friends, equipment, and houses due to the 2015 Nepal earthquakes.
