Icicles’s Staff Kipa Sherpa Summits Everest
Many congratulations to our young and energetic climbing guide Kipa Sherpa who successfully reached the summit of Mt. Everest on May 19, 2016. He was the part of Everest expedition organized by international adventure company, Adventure Consultants. Also congratulations to all other expedition team, who made it to the top of the world and other support staffs.
It was Kipa’s childhood dream to step at highest point of the earth, the point that is 8848 meters above sea level and only few true adventurers have been there. It was his first Everest summit and a moment that he will always cherish. He was also the member of Everest expedition in 2014 and 2015, but had to return during both season due to natural disasters. In 2014, deadly avalanche claimed life of 18 Sherpa guides and the expedition was abandoned, whereas devastating April 2015 earthquake made it impossible to summit Everest. Both of the time, he had a lucky escape witnessing the horrific experiences. However, this year on 19th of May 2016, he is among the few who reach the summit of Everest, and he believes this positive Everest journeys continues in future uplifting the tourism sector of Nepal in coming years.
We, all other members of Icicles Adventure feel proud to have you in our team and once again congratulate you on your success. Continue your passion in climbing and guiding along the Himalayas. Good Luck!
