The 14 summiteers in the team include soldiers serving with the Brigade of Gurkhas and high-altitude mountain guides.

The government had been extending the Everest climbing permits of those climbers who abandoned their bids in 2014 until 2019. Because that year, 326 mountaineers had received climbing permits.
The first post-avalanche ascent took place on May 23, 2014, when Chinese climber Wang Jing reached the summit of Everest. However, her ascent sparked controversy as she had flown over the Khumbu Icefall on a helicopter.
Then in 2015, quake-triggered avalanches killed 19 climbers. Not a single climb was made on Everest in 2015. This time, the government extended the permits to climb Everest for two years until 2017.

Sherchan Eyes on Everest, Age does not seem to be a restraint to Nepal’s 85-year-old Min Bahadur Sherchan. Who once wore the crown of the world’s oldest Mt Everest conqueror.
He is all set to make a fresh attempt to summit the world’s highest mountain with full confidence once again. And the Agence France Presse reported from Kathmandu.
Born in June 1931 in the Myagdi district of western Nepal. The former British Gurkha soldier. had stood atop the 8,848M mountain in May 2008 at the age of 76 years and 340 days. But breaking the record set by Japanese mountaineer Yuchira Miura the same year.
Sherchan, however, had to fight a battle for over a year to get his feat officially recognized by the Guinness Book of World Record. Because he had received the GBWR certificate in November 2009 only.
In what appeared to be a Himalayan rivalry, Miura reclaimed the crown from Sherchan in May 2013 at the age of 80.
“My aim is not to break anybody’s record, this is not a personal competition between individuals. I wish to break my own record,” Sherchan told AFP in Kathmandu.
“By climbing the Everest at this age I want to boost the self-confidence of elderly people, inspire new generations and establish a proud identity for Nepal,” the report quoted Sherchan as saying.
“The gods should help with the weather and keep me well. I have no diseases. I’ve always been healthy. My age will not stop me.”
In 2009, Sherchan announced to make an ascent of the highest peak once again when he would turn 84.
“The age of 84 is the incarnation of ‘living God’ in Nepal,” Sherchan had said at a felicitation program in presence of then Prime Minister Madhav Kumar Nepal.
Sherchan had to give up his expedition in the wake of the April 2015 earthquake that triggered avalanche in the Mt Everest. But death scores of mountaineers. Coped @thehimalayantimes.com
SANTOSH BANIYA Altitude Sickness is the rule of slow and gradual ascent, avoiding sudden gain in altitude by motor vehicle and trekking through the trails. So, we can make our trip more memorable, enjoyable and also free from altitude illness “22,108 foreign tourists. And around 8,392 domestic tourists did through the trails of Annapurna circuit in 2016”, said Babu Lal Tiruwa. So, UCO officer of Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) Manang, during a press meet at Himalayan Rescue Association (HRA), Kathmandu.
“This figure was the highest ever in the history of Annapurna region in both categories” he added. “Amongst the domestic trekkers, the majority of people were young boys and girls aged 16-30 years. And altitude Sickness most of them take a jeep or motorbike from Besisahar to Manang or Khangsar”. Said one of the lodge owners from Manang. So, the statistics from the Himalayan Rescue Association aid post in Manang from the fall of 2016 has the alarming figures which show that more than half of the altitude sickness patients traveled to Manang by motor vehicle.
The study on the rapid ascent using a motor vehicle to Manang is under analysis and more results are yet to come. But the number of patients with a severe form of altitude illnesses, that is high altitude cerebral edema and high altitude pulmonary edema in Nepali trekkers. Because it has dramatically increased in 2016 compared to previous years”, said Mr. Thaneswor Bhandari from HRA aid post in Manang.
Nepal Tourism Makes, Nepal’s tourism experienced a dramatic turnaround last year after the earthquake and crippling trade embargo in 2015.
Foreign tourist arrivals to Nepal 39.71 percent to 753,002 in 2016. The visitor growth from India, China, the US, the UK, and Sri Lanka, according to the statistics of the Department of Immigration.
However, 2016 arrivals are still 4.69 percent down from 2014. when the country has welcome 790,118 foreign visitors. The tourism boom was expected to continue in 2017. And remains a major growth driver for the economy even as the industry sees low overseas promotional activities.
October, November, and December have been the most productive months for the industry, accounting for nearly one-third of total arrivals.
“It’s a dramatic growth. The industry is returning rapidly to its pre-earthquake growth level,” said Kedar Neupane, director-general of the Department of Immigration. “The tourism boom is expecting to continue in 2017 given a level of promotion by Nepal in the major source markets.”
He said that if the government, Nepal Tourism Board and private sector conducted aggressive promotional activities, this year could be an extraordinary year. “We can expect 1 million tourists in 2017 considering the current environment.”
Neupane said that Nepal could see a boom in Chinese arrivals this year following the move by the Chinese government to encourage travel to the country. China has announced Nepal Tourism Promotion Year 2017 in a bid to encourage its citizens to visit the Himalayan republic, according to the Nepal Embassy in Beijing.
“The industry carried out massive marketing activities in major source markets. After the earthquakes, leading to a massive recovery,” said tourism entrepreneur Basant Raj Mishra. “The arrival of foreign volunteers, as well as conferences held by I/NGOs in Nepal last year, propelled growth.”
Suman Pandey, chairman of the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Nepal Chapter, said that 2017 looked promising. But the crumbling Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA), Nepal’s only international aerial gateway, could be a major setback.
“The hospitality industry in Nepal can accommodate more than 3 million tourists. But the airport is already choked with capacity constraints even though arrivals are way short of the one million marks,” he said.
TIA is currently served by 28 international carriers, and it has announced that it cannot accommodate more flights. “What does this statement mean? Of course. Nepal has become an attractive holiday destination for travelers, but TIA will remain the main obstacle to the growth of the industry.”
Himalayan country Nepal received a lot of media exposure following the earthquake which has aroused tremendous interest among potential travelers.
Nepal Tourism Makes the world’s leading travel guide Lonely Planet has named Nepal the world’s ‘best value destination’ for 2017. Likewise, Nepal’s Langtang region has been featured in The New York Times ‘52 Places to go in 2017’ list.
Nepal has also appeared in the January travel issue of chinadaily.com.cn. “Nepal remains a fabulous choice for budget-conscious travelers. Whether it’s the country’s world-famous trekking routes or the wildlife in the southern region. Travel costs per day are as low as $50 on average,” it said.
A breakdown of arrivals by market shows Indian travelers at the top of the list. Arrivals from the southern neighbor reached 118,249 last year, up 57.40 percent. Chinese tourist arrivals jumped 55.26 percent to 104,005. Travel trade entrepreneurs said that Chinese arrivals did not increase as expected last year as the key entry point. Tatopani Customs in Sindhupalchok was closed after the earthquake. However, Rasuwagadhi is an important surface route with 23,452 Chinese visitors entering the country through this point last year.
Meanwhile, visitors from the US, Sri Lanka,, and the UK jumped 25.67 percent, 29.64 percent, and 55.71 percent respectively.
The Annapurna Base Camp trek (or Annapurna Sanctuary Trek. It’s also known) was the first commercial trekking route in Nepal. And outdoor enthusiasts from all over the world have been flocking to the region for over 50 years to see what it’s all about.
The trek owes its popularity primarily to the incredible Himalayan views. But its well-marked trails, frequent lodges along the way, along trekking season. But easy access to trailheads starting just an hour or two away in Pokhara. It has done a lot to bolster its reputation as one of the best places for trekking in Nepal.
If you’re visiting the Annapurna Conversation Area this trekking season, here are three major highlights not to miss along the trail:
A hard one to miss, Annapurna Base Camp Trek is the obvious holy grail of this trek. At 4,130 m, trekkers are surrounded on all sides by spectacular snow-capped peaks. So, like the supreme Annapurna I (8,091m) and its sisters Annapurna South, Annapurna Fang, Annapurna III. You will also have good views of Hiunchuli, Gangapurna, Khangsar Kang, Tent Peak. And the iconic Machapuchare, also known as Fishtail Mountain.
Our favorite way to approach the final stages of the ABC Trek is to spend the night at Machapuchare Base Camp. Then get up early the next morning and trek the last 2-3 hours up to Annapurna Base Camp in time to watch the sunrise over the Annapurna mountain range.
Annapurna Apple Pie
Some would argue that the Annapurna Base Camp trek is as much a culinary experience as it is a natural one. All along the trail, you’ll come across welcoming teahouses serving steaming Dal Bhat, mouthwatering Mo: Mos and the staple dessert of the region – homemade apple pie.
Jhinu Hot Springs
A visit to the hot springs in Jhinu Danda works magic on your tired trekking legs. So, it is a well-deserved break on your return trip from base camp. Jhinu itself is a delightful little settlement, set on top of a ridge along your descent from Chomrong. Because with a couple of lovely teahouses and pop-up craft shops. Because the hot springs are a 20-25 minute walk on a descending path to the river Modi Khola below. Trust us, it is well worth the detour.
There are three pools of varying temperatures, basic changing facilities, a natural shower to wash off the blood, sweat. And tears from the trek and a little spot to dip your feet in the rushing (and freezing) waters of the Modi Khola.
