The initial successful ascent of Mount Everest occurred seven decades ago today. The height and extreme of Mount Everest was successfully scaled on May 29, 1953, by Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Tenzing Norgey.

Since Edmund Hillary’s death in 2008, May 29 has been designated as International Mount Everest Day.

The Nepali government honored more than 100 Mount Everest climbers on the 16th International Mount Everest Day with a Sagarmatha special batch.

Sanu Sherpa was the first person to successfully complete the double ascent of all 14 eight-thousanders, and many other well-known climbers from Nepal and abroad received the Sagarmatha special batch. Kami Rita Sherpa held the world record for the most successful ascent of Mount Everest with 28 attempts.

Climbers were also honored by the government of Nepal with a number of awards. Pasang Dawa Sherpa, Kishor Adhikari, and Pasang Lhamu Sherpa were honored with the Tenzing Hillary Award while Sanu Sherpa received the Sagarmatha National Award for his 27th ascent of Mount Everest. .

Climbers received their batches from the honorable Sushila Sirpali Thakuri, State Minister for Culture, Tourism, and Civil Aviation (MoCTCA). The Honorable State Minister also introduced Nepal Parbat, a NMA publication, at the event.

In addition, the top seven trekking companies that will sell the most Mount Everest treks in 2022 were recognized by the honorable state minister, along with the rope-fixing team.

The distribution of batches to the climbers was praised by the honorable state minister as a crucial step in recognizing the climbers.

The work being done here is crucial for both climbers and Nepal. The climbers will be recognized as Mount Everest Summiteers throughout the world, and the Government of Nepal’s logo affixed to the batch will aid in that recognition, according to the state minister.

The Government will also organize similar celebrations on the first successful summits of other eight-thousanders in Nepal, according to announcement from MoCTCA Secretary Suresh Adhikari.

Mountains are Nepal’s primary source of tourists. So, we should protect and promote our mountains,” Secretary Adhikari said.

For the past 50 years, the Nepal Mountain Association has been protecting the mountains. But we must expand our efforts and influence,” President Sherpa said. “NMA will place more emphasis on education to produce knowledgeable human resources for the security of mountaineering in Nepal.”
