About Us

About UsWe opened our doors in late September of 2002 with a unique approach to the restaurant business. From our love for good Himalayan cuisine (and the talents of our great chefs), our personal affinity for the culture, passion for the mountains, cold beer & education, Sherpa's was born.

As the name implies, there are genuine Sherpas from the Himalaya here to bring a little of Nepal & Tibet to Boulder. In addition to great food & atmosphere, Ama Dablamwe offer a truly unique "traveler's lounge" with plenty of books to help get you started planning your next (or better yet first) adventure. Keep an eye out for our list of guest speakers and slide shows. If experiencing the Himalayas (or Thailand, Africa, or South America for that matter) appeals to you - you're in the right place. Sherpa's is the place to re-live the glories of past adventures and plan new ones. We would be happy to help you plan a wide range of travel adventures from major Himalayan Expeditions and Volunteer Medical & Non-Medical trips to casual treks and mountain biking excursions. Let us know if you are interested, we can book them right here everyday.

Thanks again. We hope Sherpa's provides all we intend - good food, cold beer, a little inspiration, a little education and escape to the Himalayas - all without leaving the shadow of the Flat Irons.
