SOLUKHUMBU, April 17: A team of the Nepali Army (NA) has moved ahead from Namche of Solukhumbu to clean the mountains including the world's highest peak, Sagarmatha (Mt Everest).

The team under 'Clean Mountain Campaign-2024' has headed toward Mt Everest base camp from Namche today to clean Mt Everest, Lhotse, and Nuptse mountains.

Two members of the 13-member team would stay at Namche for emergency rescue, said   Lieutenant Colonel at Ranshur Company, Namche, Prachanda Bikram Bharati.

"We bade farewell to 11 members of the team amidst a program today. The team has moved ahead toward Sagarmatha basecamp," he shared. The team led by Major Aditya Karki had stayed in Namche for two days.

The team members would interact with local people to make the campaign effective and reach Sagarmatha base camp after a seven-day trek. The trekking route would also be cleaned up to create awareness and publicity for the campaign in the course of trekking.

According to the NA, a target has been set to collect around 10 tonnes of waste from different base camps of Mt Everest, Lhotse, and Nuptse mountains in the course of a campaign.

Earlier, at a program organized at NA Headquarters last Thursday, Chief of Army Staff, Prabhu Ram Sharma, launched the campaign by handing over a flag to Major Karki.
