It’s right time for shouting!!!! We did the first Mt Everest summit 2008 on the south side.

“Congratulation to our team”

We did first Mt Everest summit from the South side. Cheers my friend Namgya Sherpa, yes actually he is my best friend.

Few information of Namgya Sherpa!!!!!Namgya on Summit of Mt Everest last year 2007

Namgya Sherpa, a permanent resident of Lelep V.DC – 8, Taplejung district, (a very far eastern region of Nepal) & now temporary resident of Kathmandu is a very successful mountain guide. He started trekking & mountaineering expedition field as a junior trekking sherpa man who just carry backpack of client. But now this is his 7th times summit on Mt Everest. Last year on the north side of Mt Everest he did twice summit.

How did he make the first Mt Everest Summit from the south east route?

He went up to Everest base camp after guiding a trekking team to Langtang region. As I remember he flew to Lukla on 3rd may 2008 & he is on the top on 20th may, which means that within the 17 days only. What a great job Namgya!!! Cool.

Yesterday around 4pm, I have received a call from my base camp cook, Mr Lunduk sherpa, we just talked few minutes. He said ………………..

“ Hello Dawa, today Namgya Sherpa reached on the top of Mt Everest at 3.30 pm. Plus Rosa Fernandez Maria & Da Chhiri Sherpa, they made summit of Mt Lhotse at 8.35 am.”

Ms Rosa Fernendez Maria, from Spain, is a real Himalaya mountain climber; she did Mt Everest with us before. Da Chhiri Sherpa, an experienced climbing sherpa from Namche- 4, date of birth 1977. I don’t say 100% that Rosa & Da Chhiri is the first summit persons on Mt Lhotse spring 2008 but I can say more than 50% that they are the first summiteers on Lhotse as well.

I am waiting for more news from Everest base camp. Richard an experienced Canadian climber supposes to go on summit this morning. Ms Kalpana Dash, an indian lady climber is doing well, she plan to go for summit attampt on 23rd morning. I will up date the news soon as possible.
