Pujan Acharya, Maya Gurung and Shailee Basnet could not continue with the climb because of health issues and logistics management.

Shailee, the team's coordinator shared: "It's a very proud moment for us. Weather seems to be
major challenge in this mountain. The team had to wait for five days at Camp 14 (14000 feet) and even on the day of summit, they faced wind and snow causing low visibility."
