Did you know that almost 3000 people have climbed the supreme Mt Everest since it was 1st conquered by Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary? Many more had tried but few were successful. Even then, no one so far has climbed the beastly mountain twice within a gap of just a week. Last year a 29 year old Nepalese woman conquered the 8,848 meter high peak on May 12 and repeated the same trek again on May 19, within just a gap of 7 days. Chhurim Sherpa the young and courageous adventurer was recognized for her feat and awarded with the Guinness world record on Monday. Sharing her excitement she said “I am very happy for this recognition. I was determined that the record should be held by a Nepalese woman and I’m proud to be one”. The first Nepalese woman to reach the top was also a Sherpa, Pasang Lhamu who unfortunately died during her decent.Chhurim also mentioned how climbing the Everest is tough, especially for a women due to lack of toilets and having to share a tent amongst five people, yet the thrill of achieving the toughest is unmatchable. This victory and remarkable achievement of Chhurim Sherpa is praise worthy and an inspiration to all the adventurers out there especially women.
‘Journey to the Jungle’ team wishes her a hearty congratulations and best wishes for all her future endeavors.
