Tshering is a married man with two daughters, one of whom lives in Canada and the other in the United Kingdom. Upon the arrival of both daughters in Nepal, the last rituals will be conducted in accordance with Buddhist customs.

The Musicians Association of Nepal President, Chetan Sapkota, expressed sadness for Tshering’s passing and the Nepali music industry.

Norbu Tshering worked with Narayan Gopal, Nati Kaji, Bhaktaraj Acharya, and others on a number of well-known songs, such as ‘Jeewan Bhanun Ta Ghat Cha’ and ‘Kina Pheri Maya samji Tadpinchha Man’.
