Dawa Tenzing Lama is from Chhokang village of Tsum. He went to local school and later in India for Buddhist education. So, he has good linguistic skills in Tibetan, English and Nepali. Besides he speaks Tsumpa to interact with locals. His utter sincerity and much needed care and attention to the entire crew ensure a good team spirit during expedition. He often likes to offer his home for overnight stay or lunch not only to give you the opportunity to get closer with local culture but also for himself to get a chance to meet family. His home offers probably the best home stay experience in Tsum.
