First Ascent Team in Rolwaling Valley
On 26th September, the first Nepalese team on first ascent in Rolwaling headed to Rolwaling Valley. They planned to climb 3 new mountains which were never been climbed. All the 3 members of the team are from Rolwaling valley and they took their step to explore the valley. There are many unclimbed peaks and the valley itself is so beautiful to trek. Now it's getting its popularity as best destination for ice climbing and rock climbing in Nepal. It is also the nearest place for climbing and trekking from capital city, Kathmandu, Nepal.
They are professional guides in Nepal with trained from Nepal National Mountain Guide Association affiliated to IFMGA/UIAGM.This first phase of Mountain Guide course from IFMGA in Nepal held in Rolwaling.
Raungsiyar made summit
The 3 Nepalese team on 3 mountains made first successful ascent on Mt Rongsiyar on 4th October at 3:15pm. This is the first ever expedition on Mt Raungsiyar. So it's a official that this is the first ascent.
This is also the first mountain that has registered only Nepalese name in the list of first ascent. Nepalese made many first ascent on many mountain but never made only by Nepalese. Usually we hear foreigneer+Nepalese name like Everest, Tenzing Norgey Sherpa from Nepal and Sir Edmund Hillary from New ZeaLand. Detail report of route and scenery has to come.
Langdak Made Summit
The Nepalese team also made successful ascent on Mt Langdak on 5th Oct 2015 at 11:45am. In a conversation with the team leader, Nima Tenjing Sherpa, he mentioned this is the best view point he ever climbed. He also told that this is the only mountain from where he saw 6 mountains of 8000m together from same place. The 8000m mountains are Mt Everest (8848m), Mt Kanchenjunga (8586m), Mt Lhotse (8516m), Mt Makalu (8463m), Mt Cho Oyu (8201m) and Mt Sishapangma (8013m).
Mera peak used to be regarded as the best mountain to see 5*8000m peaks but Langdak added Sishapangma in additional. It's a very good news and exploration for several commercial expedition operators and climbers who are interested to see 6*8000m mountains together.
