Kathmandu, May 16
Nepali pop sensation and a member of the famed band Mongolian Heart, Raju Lama climbed Everest on Monday morning.
He reached the summit with 26 others at 6:40 am on Monday, the expedition organiser informed.
Lama climbed Everest with Imagine Nepal, an expedition agency owned by Mingma G, one of the 10 who reached the summit of K2 in the 2021 winter. Mingma G also reached the true summit of Manaslu in the autumn of 2021. According to sources, Mingma G climbed without the use of bottled oxygen.
The team that reached the summit with Raju Lama had people from China, Pakistan, Russia and Australia.
Lama climbed Everest to spread the message of climate change. He wanted to raise awareness about how people living in the mountains were directly affected by it. He had climbed Lobuche last year.
On the way to the summit, he even held a solo concert above Camp 3 of the mountain at an altitude of 6,574 metres.
