Kathmandu, November 11
A 12-member expedition including a Qatari royal family member has climbed Mount Ama Dablam in the Everest region of Nepal on Wednesday morning.
Ishwari Paudel, the managing director of Himalayan Guides Nepal, says the team including Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdullah Al Thani reached the summit of the 6,812-metre tall mountain at 11:20 today.
The expedition includes six foreigners and six Nepalis.
This expedition follows the successful climbing of two mountains in Nepal–Manaslu and Lobuche–by a team led by Bahraini Prince Mohamed Hamad Mohamed Al Khalifa recently.
Whereas the country could not host any mountaineering expedition in the spring this year due to the Covid-19 crisis, the number of autumn expeditions is also not much exciting. However, tourism entrepreneurs hope the visits by such high-profile climbers and trekkers could help the country’s tourism industry revive.
