Spring season is considered to be the best season for mountain climbers in Nepal. In spring, many climbers from different countries come to Nepal to climb the mountains. But even in autumn there are climbing activities in some mountains of Nepal.

Nepali climber Kamirita Sherpa, who has successfully climbed Mt. Everest 26 times, is currently on an expedition to climb Mt. Manaslu, which is considered the eighth highest mountain in the world. Last spring alone, he reached the peak of Mount Everest 26 times and set a new world record. After the success of Everest, he said in a conversation with NepalNews that his climbing gerney will continue.

Accordingly, Kamirita is climbing the Manaslu in this autumn. Manaslu is not new mountain for him. He has climbed this mountain many times. Kamirita is leading the climbing team of 8 thousand 163 meters high Manaslu.

Now other record holder climbers have also gone to climb Manaslu. Ngima Nuru Sherpa, who has climbed Mount Everest 24 times, Funuru Sherpa, who has climbed Everest 19 times, was very happy to meet world record climber Kamirita during the Manaslu climb. They also had lunch together at a local restaurant in Gorkha.
