SOLUKHUMBU, March 21: A team of eight icefall doctors has reached the base camp to pave the route for mountaineers to the summit of Mt Sagarmatha (Everest). A team led by Ang Sarki Sherpa, an icefall doctor who has been active in route construction for a long time, has reached the base camp.

KATHMANDU, April 1: The number of people climbing Mt Sagarmatha from Nepal has been increasing this year as there will be no climbing from China in the spring this year. Officials at the Department of Tourism (DoT) are optimistic that this could greatly help revive the mountaineering sector that suffered huge loss last year due to the pandemic.
