Steve Obbayi from Kenya flew to Nepal in 2014, attempting to become the first Kenyan to summit Mt. Everest. However, the destiny had other plans. The treacherous Khumbu Icefall without warning broke apart, swept away the lives of 16 Sherpa Climbers, and shattered the hearts of millions. The world was shocked and the expeditions for the entire year were abandoned. Steve and his crew had no choice and they returned back with the devastated hearts.
Explore Himalaya expresses heartfelt condolence to all the Climbers who lost their lives during catastrophic incident in the Himalayas.
Steve Obbayi is once again in the mountains of Nepal preparing to summit the Everest. We wish Steve would return from the mountains being the first Kenyan to summit the Everest. Good Luck Steve.
