Imagine Nepal’s team of Sherpas has set a remarkable feat by successfully setting the fixed line to the summit of Lhotse, the fourth-highest mountain in the world. Despite facing numerous emotional, physical, and mental challenges this year, the team of four Sherpas—Dawa Tenjin Sherpa, Pasang Namgyal Sherpa, Tamting Sherpa, and Pemba Tamang—successfully reached the Lhotse summit on 15th May 2023 at 12:50 pm.
Ngima Nuru and Pemba Tamang provided support to the Lhotse fixing team by carrying rope and fixing equipment.
This successful conclusion of the rope fixing is a significant milestone for Imagine Nepal and the climbers waiting to climb Lhotse safely to reach the summit. The team’s hard work and dedication have allowed them to ascend the mountain with increased safety and confidence.
The expedition came with challenges, as the team had to navigate treacherous terrain and unpredictable weather conditions. However, their unwavering determination and commitment to the task allowed them to overcome these obstacles and reach their goal.
We are deeply grateful to all the Lhotse rope fixing team members for their hard work and dedication, and we send our best wishes for a safe return.
At Imagine Nepal, we strongly believe in keeping the mountains clean. Every small effort we make can significantly impact the mountain environment. In the picture are the old ropes and oxygen cylinders collected by our fixing team during the first and second phases of the rope fixing. Our team will continue to collect more rubbish from south cole and above upon returning from the summit.
