3 Nepalese Brothers plan 24 hours atop Everest
According to BBC South Asia, three Nepalese brothers are planning to break a world record by staying on top of Mount Everest for 24 hours. Pemba Dorje Sherpa , and his two younger brothers Nima Gyalzen and Phurba Tenzing, who are from Rolwaling, intend to use their stay on the summit to pray for peace in Nepal and the world. They are vowing to stay there for 24 hours whatever the weather .

 The  brothers are planning toset off on 1 April and are aiming to reach the summit during May. Some clothing companies and Nepalese banks are helping with sponsorship. They will also have a team of helpers, including cooks, none of whom will climb above the South Col (7,900 m).

The current record for staying on top is 20 hours, achieved by the late Babu Chiri Sherpa.

Happy Explorers

We went to different tops like Chhukung Ri, Kalapattar and Gokyo Ri. We were a lot high in the mountains and the experience was wonderful.
