Even though the climbers have started to be busy climbing various mountains in Nepal, the process of getting permission for climbing is continuing. Now some climbers have completed their ascent, but most are still climbing. But even in such a situation, the number of teams coming to Kathmandu for permits is increasing. The Department of Tourism has been giving permission to the new team to climb every day. Climbers who come for the ascent in the spring season have a special goal of climbing by the end of May. They will have to leave the base camp by the first week of June.

This spring, the number of teams getting permission to climb 25 different mountains of Nepal has reached 108. The teams from different countries have a total of 875 climbers, including 685 men and 191 women. According to the Department of Tourism, the Government of Nepal has earned 36.89 million US dollars by distributing the permit.

Citizens of war-torn countries also in the mountains

Climbers from the war-torn Russian Federation and Ukraine have also arrived in Nepal. Twenty-eight climbers, including 19 men and 9 women, have come to Nepal from the Russian Federation, most of them climbers. Only one female climber from Ukraine is leaving for Everest.

In the past, a large number of climbers used to come to Nepal's mountains, but this time 16 climbers from Japan and 14 from the Republic of Korea have got permission.

The only countries to climb this time are Andorra, Belarus, Egypt, El Salvador, Hong Kong, Iraq, Lithuania, Malta, New Zealand, Oman, Kosovo, Saudi Arabia, Swaziland, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates and Uruguay. Egypt, El Salvador, Malta, Kosovo, United Arab Emirates and Uruguay are the only countries represented by a female climber.

It is believed that the current activities in the mountains of Nepal will help to restore the tourism activities of Nepal which were in a state of zero due to Covid.
