Mingma Sherpa (born June 16, 1978),[1] is a Nepali mountaineer.

On May 20, 2011, at age 32, Sherpa became the first person from Nepal[2] and the first South Asian[3] to scale all 14 of the world's highest mountains. In the process, he set a new world record—he became the first mountaineer to climb all 14 peaks on the first attempt. Mingma Sherpa and his brother, Chhang Dawa Sherpa, hold the world record of "World's First Two Brothers" to successfully summit the 14 mountains which are above 8,000 metres (26,000 ft). This is a record in mountaineering history.

Mingma Sherpa is the managing director of Seven Summit Treks.
