In 1979, while a student of engineering, Tashi was selected for Nepal's first-ever mountaineering training course in Manang. After several years of climbing including Mt. Everest, he was chosen to go to ENSA (Ecole Nationale de Ski et d’Alpinisme) in Chamonix to be certified as a guide, and decided not to go Russia to study engineering. In addition to climbing extensively in the Swiss, French and Italian Alps, as well as in Dolomites, he was also an instructor at the Norwegian Mountaineering School in Hemsedal. Tashi started Everest Trekking in 1982.

Bhrikuti, Yak Khawa, and Naur Peak, and has led a number of other noteworthy expeditions, such as the 1988 Tri-National (Nepal, Japan, China) Everest Traverse Expedition, which was first such endeavor to be broadcasted live on television worldwide. It was Tashi’s brainchild project to organize the first Sherpa Mt. Everest speed climb to set a world record by Kaji Sherpa. Tashi, who speaks seven languages, has always built long term relationships with his fellow mountaineers, including Sir Edmund Hillary, Maurice Herzog, Reinhold Messner, Hans Kammerlander, Kurt Diemberger, Dr Oswald Oelz, Darko Berljak, Pierre Beghin and Ales Kunaver.

He was elected President of Nepal Mountaineering Association and during his tenure planned the opening of scores of new climbing peaks.
