KATHMANDU: Nepali diaspora in Hong Kong is organising a hiking event with an objective to strengthen and promote tourism in Nepal.

Sherpa has ascended the Everest for 10 times, while he has records for climbing the highest peak of the world twice within three days and nine times within the age between 17 and 24. Meanwhile, Sherpa is scheduled to share his experiences and insights of mountain climbing with the audience and participants. The hiking organised under the campaign “we will rise again” is scheduled to begin from Central, moving towards to Wan Chai Gap, Wang Nai Chung Reservoir Park and conclude at Repulse Bay.

Jun 8, 2016- We Will Rise Foundation, a social organisation, on Tuesday honoured 32 mountaineers who had set different records on Mt Everest for their contribution in promoting Nepal.
The foundation also handed over stones from Everest to representatives of five countries—the US, the UK, Russia, China, and France—and the United Nations to spread the message regarding the impact of global warming on the world’s tallest peak. The stones were collected from Camp IV (8,000 meters).
“Such an event aims to create awareness on the cause and effect of global warming,” said Mohan Krishna Shrestha, former Nepali ambassador to France. “We aim to promote Nepal and strengthen ties with different countries to tackle climate change.” He said that Everest is hallmark of the world and it should be protected.
“Nepal needs to take proactive measures to protect Everest from global warming,” said Phurba Tenjing Sherpa who holds the record of climbing Everest at the youngest age.
Minister for Youth and Sports Satya Narayan Mandal said that the rise in rapid industrialisation and population has made the climate change issue a global concern. Countries like Nepal have faced the aftermaths of global warming.
We believe that today’s event will send out positive message to the world leaders.
