Title: Sherpas Paid enough?
Post by: GMatthews on Sep 2 2006, 13:02
I was just wondering if you guys think the Sherpas get paid enough?
The lowest I have seen is around $1,000US and the highest is around $2,500US on an Everest expedition. I think any climbing Sherpas should walk away with at least 5,000US. That way they could possibly go on a vacation and get other stuff. So what do you think $5,000 too much or still too little?
