Climbers from different countries are now taking initiatives towards different mountains of Nepal. Climbers from 61 countries have so far been allowed to climb Nepal's mountains, which have been deserted for a long time. The Department of Tourism has continued to issue permits to climbing teams from different countries on a daily basis and some teams have even completed the work of climbing the mountain.

Now, the news of successful ascent from the base camps of various mountains has started coming.

This morning, two climbers managed to reach the 8167 meter high peak of Dhaulagiri Mountain. According to Seven Summit Treks, the successful climbers include Antonios Sykaris from Greece and Dawa Sherpa from Nepal.

The team left the base camp on April 4 for a 12-hour walk and reached the second camp at an altitude of 6,350 meters. After spending the night in the second camp, the team reached the third camp at an altitude of 7,329 meters after walking for 11 hours the next morning.

Similarly, Nepal's climbing team is led by climber Mingma G. Sherpa has successfully climbed Dhawalagiri. All the members of the team reached the top of Dhawalagiri between 9:30 am and 12 noon. All team members have returned to base camp.

The main reasons for the success of the ascent were mountain conditions, stable weather, excellent snow conditions, no threat of avalanche and no risk of life, said team leader Mingma G. Sherpa. He said that he looked at mountains differently as he was both a climber and an organizer. "Because mountaineering is about dealing with someone's life," he said.

Annapurna and Dhaulagiri are adjacent to the mountains and in late March and early April, he feels that the best time to climb these mountains. The technical partner of the team was National Mountain Guide Association. The team now aims to climb Kanchenjunga.

The team consists of climbers from different countries as well as 11 Nepali climbers.

Climbers Dorchi Sherpa and Waichman Yaron, a foreign climber, have reached the Iceland Peak Mountains. The mountain is 6,189 meters high.

The base camp of the world's highest peak, Mount Everest, has also started moving. Camps for climbers from different countries are being set up. Construction of the way to the second camp from base camp has been completed.

Rope fixing is currently underway above the second camp. A team led by world-renowned climber Kamirita Sherpa is doing just that. In this connection, climber Kamirita Sherpa is planning to set her new world record by reaching Mt. Everest 26 times.

 The ascent of Mount Everest begins only after the rope fixing work is completed. This time, the pressure of most climbers is on Everest.

A Mountaineering Monitoring and Facilitation Committee has been formed to make the necessary coordination and facilitation in the work of making the mountaineering activities in the Khumbu region more regular, dignified and systematic in the spring of 2022.
