International Mount Everest Day, which is being celebrated on May 29 to commemorate the historic day when humans first set foot on the world's highest peak, Mount Everest, will also be celebrated in Albany. New York State Assembly member Jennifer Prince made the announcement at a special ceremony in New York.

  In previous years, the US Nepal Climbers Association had been collaborating with organizations such as the Nepali Consulate General in New York, the American Alpine Club, Explorer USA, the New York City Outbound, and the United Sherpa Association to celebrate Everest Day.

Mingmar Lama, general secretary of the US-Nepal Climbers Association, said the day had reached new heights after Jennifer Rajkumar, a member of the New York State Legislative Assembly, invited Albany to celebrate Everest Day with grandeur from next year.

The dignified presence of various world renowned climbers enhanced the beauty of today's event. A total of 60 climbers were presented with certificates of appreciation by Rajkumar, a member of the Legislative Assembly, for their courage, sacrifice and honesty. He also presented letters of appreciation to the members and volunteers who helped make the program a success.

The US Nepal Climbers Association has expressed its heartfelt gratitude to the members of the New York Legislative Assembly for this high honor bestowed on the International Everest Day and the world-renowned Nepali mountaineer. The Association has expressed its gratitude to the Consul General of Nepal, Bishnu Prasad Gautam, Vice President of Queens Borough, Rhonda Binda and other people's representatives and prominent personalities of the Nepali community.

The association also said that the experience of collaborating with the Nepali Consulate General Family, United Sherpa Association and GPK Foundation is very pleasant.
