No fancy new gear can take away the “man versus mountain” element of climbing, says one of Sir Edmund Hillary’s climbing contemporaries on the 60th anniversary of the climbing great’s conquest of Everest.

Wellingtonian Brian Wilkins, 88, was part of a New Zealand Alpine Club expedition to the Himalayas, led by Hillary in 1954, which tackled a series of mountains – Mr Wilkins himself summited six and survived a fall into a crevasse on one of the climbs with Hillary. He also made the first ascent of the northeast ridge of Mt Aspiring, in the Southern Alps. Read the rest of this entry »

Nepalese presenter sets talk show world record

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on April 14, 2013

KATHMANDU : A Nepalese presenter has set the world record for the longest television talk show by staying on air for 62 hours and 12 minutes, organisers said Sunday.

Nepal-G1Rabi Lamichhane, a 36-year-old based in the US, returned to Kathmandu to  stage the “Lord Buddha Was Born in Nepal” programme, which took the Guinness  world record late Saturday night.

Our campaign was aimed to spread the message to the world that the Buddha  was born in Nepal,” said Anil Joshi, Chairman of News24, the television station  broadcasting the program told AFP, adding that the programme promoted tourism  destinations such as Mount Everest.

One hundred guests, ranging from former Maoist rebel leader Pushpa Kamal  Dahal, to the Indian ambassador to Nepal, to Nepalese television celebrities  and common people joined Lamichhane during the programme.

Lamichhane’s performance broke the record previously held by Pavlo Kuzheyev  and Tetiana Danylenko for a 52-hour broadcast to celebrate the twentieth  anniversary of Ukraine’s independence in 2011.

According to Guinness World Records rules, Lamichhane was allowed five  minutes every hour for a break.

Organizers said he ate some meals while interviewing guests, banked several  of the slots for a longer rest period and otherwise survived on energy drinks. Read the rest of this entry »

Nepal was promoted in Pako Festa, Australia

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on February 23, 2013

Parade

23 February 2013 Geelong, Australia: Geelong, the second biggest city of Victoria in Australia, transformed into a multicultural melting pot as thousands flocked to the thirty-first annual Pako Festa. It incorporated an extravagant street parade featuring around ninety floats and hundreds of performers representing forty-five affiliated ethnic communities and around sixty other community groups and organizations. The street was lined with stalls selling traditional foods and arts and crafts, and nine separate stages in the precinct offer performances of music and dance as well as interactive workshops and exhibitions. Pako Festa has become Victoria’s premier multicultural event, attended by well over hundred thousand people in each of the last three years and estimated to inject close to $2.5 million dollars into the local economy just over the course of the day itself.

Parade2

Because of very nominal Nepalese in Geelong, Lumbini-Kapilvastu Day Movement Global Coordinator Mr. Ram Kumar Shrestha requested other Nepalese communities living in other cities to use Pako Festa as opportunity to promote Nepal as the country of the Buddha and the Mt. Everest. His idea was for Nepal to take advantage of this big gathering from different counties to try to dismiss misinformation of Buddha’s birthplace. Nepalese Association of Victoria President Bom Yonjan, Nepali Sanchar Managing Director Pramod K Soni and Namaste Nepal News Chief Editor Sabin Thapa, and Lumbini-Kapilvastu Day Movement Victoria Committee were active for necessary input and mobilized community members to participate in the festival to promote Nepal as the country of the Buddha and the Mt. Everest. Nepalese communities promoted Nepal through flags, banners, Nepali music, dance, Nepali dress and stalls. Miss Nepal Australia 2012 Deepashree Shah represented our country with a Kumari dance. Read the rest of this entry »

Promoting Nepal as birth place of Buddha and country of Mt. Everest (Sagarmatha)

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 18, 2012

PetetionWould you collect 200 signatures to PROMOTE Nepal as Birthplace of Lord Buddha & Land Of Mt. Everest (Sagaramatha) ?

~ Prem Guragain, Los Angeles, California

It might sound selfish or impractical but this is the truth: we might live without food, water for few days but can’t live without self-respect. Even small children like to be appreciated, cared and loved. All grown up people have tendency to be appreciated and respected for anything they do.

We all crave for appreciation and hence do much social work, volunteering work, write, sing, speak etc. etc. How about our National PRIDE & RESPECT in the world?

We definitely would love to get RESPECT for the motherland and hence, the PETITION was started.

We started the PETITION: “Promote: Buddha was born in Nepal & Mt. Everest is in Nepal (www.nepalesepride.org)” in July, 2012 with confidence that we will collect 1,000,000 signatures from around the world and correct the fact that has been recorded wrong. Over seven billion people in the world will know these facts about NEPAL (Never Ending Peace And Love), the country that lies between India and China as many people in the world have never heard of Nepal even though they know Lord Buddha’s teachings and Mt. Everest (Sagaramatha) being the highest peak in the world. Read the rest of this entry »

Ming Kipa – the Youngest Person to Climb Mt. Everest

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on June 1, 2012

Ming Kipa is a Nepalese Sherpa girl who (as recorded in the 2009 Guinness Book of Records) held the record as the youngest person to climb Mount Everest from 2003 to 2010. She reached the summit on May 24, 2003 when she was 15 years old, with her brother Mingma Gyula and her sister Laphka. Nepalese law does not allow climbers under 16 to climb Everest, so Ming Kipa Sherpa summitted Everest from the Chinese side. Her record was broken in 2010 when Jordan Romero reached the summit on May 22nd of that year at the age of 13 years, 10 months. The previous record holder was Temba Tsheri who climbed Everest at the age of 16 in 2001. Read the rest of this entry »

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on May 25, 2012

By  (about the author)

A Nepali teenager has claimed that she is the youngest woman ever to scale Mount Everest, achieving the feat at the tender age of 16.

Nima Chemji Sherpa, 16, reached the summit of Mount Everest at 12:13 pm on May 19 by being part of an expedition team named “High Adventure Expedition-2012”. Nima was accompanied by her father.

However, the government is yet to officially confirm that Nima is indeed the youngest woman ever to achieve the feat.

According to reports, the jubilant girl is now recovering at the Everest Base Camp.

Nima, originally from Solukhombu district, has been living in Boudha of Kathmandu. A student who appeared in the SLC examination recently (junior high school), she climbed Mt Everest to utilize her “free time” after the exams, media reports quoted her as saying. Read the rest of this entry »

A 72-year-old man from a remote valley in southwestern Nepal has ben declared the shortest man ever documented after being measured by Guinness World Records officials.
Chandra Bahadur Dangi stands just 54.6cm tall, measurements confirmed, 5.3cm shorter than Filipino Junrey Balawing, the previous holder of the “world’s shortest man” title.
“I’m continually amazed that this record keeps getting broken,” Guinness World Records editor-in-chief Craig Glenday said in a statement after the adjudication in the Nepali capital Kathmandu.
“Just when you think it’s impossible for the record to get any smaller, Mr Dangi comes along and astonishes us all.
“What I find equally remarkable is his age – if he really is 72, he is by far the oldest person to be awarded the shortest-man record in Guinness World Record’s 57-year history.”

Prince Harry is all set to climb Mount Everest

Prince Harry will make good on his promise to the wounded servicemen he joined on their trek to the North Pole to join them on their next challenge – the world’s highest mountain

Prince Harry will make good on his promise to the wounded servicemen he joined on their trek to the North Pole to join them on their next challenge - the world's highest mountain

The 27-year-old prince dropped a broad hint at the end of his trek to the North Pole last year to raise money for Walking With the Wounded, the charity of which he is patron, that he wanted to join the group of wounded servicemen on their next challenge in May, which will see them climbing the world’s highest mountain.  Photo: PA

With the celebrations to to mark his grandmother’s diamond jubilee, the Olympics and his first official solo tour taking him to Jamaica, Belize and the Bahamas, the year ahead already looks hectic enough for Prince Harry. The third in line to the throne is, however, adamant that 2012 will also see him realise his long-held ambition to conquer Everest.

The 27-year-old prince dropped a broad hint at the end of his trek to the North Pole last year to raise money for Walking With the Wounded, the charity of which he is patron, that he wanted to join the group of wounded servicemen on their next challenge in May, which will see them climbing the world’s highest mountain.

Buckingham Palace has since declined to comment on whether it would be possible to fit the climb into his schedule – “it will all depend on his Army commitments,” his spokesman will say only – and there has been no comment, either, from the charity. Now, however, Mollie Hughes, the 21-year-old mountaineer who plans to become the youngest British woman to climb Everest when she makes her own ascent with Kenton Cool in May, and who has been co-ordinating their climb with that of the Walking With the Wounded group, has told Mandrake she has been told that the prince will also be going up.
