A crew of 10 Nepali summiteers climbed K2, setting a file as the primary crew ever to climb the world’s second-highest mountain within the winter season.
The 28,251-foot summit of K2 has by no means been reached in winter as a result of climate and geographical difficulties.
Climbing to the highest requires technical expertise. K2 is the second-highest peak after Mount Everest.
Mingma Gyalje Sherpa, Nirmal Purja, Pun Magar, Gelje Sherpa, Mingma David Sherpa, Mingma Tenzi Sherpa, Dawa Temba Sherpa, Pem Chhiri Sherpa, Kilu Pemba Sherpa, DawaTenjing Sherpa, and Sona Sherpa reached the highest of the height on Saturday afternoon.
“THE IMPOSSIBLE MADE POSSIBLE! K2winter- History made for mankind. History made for Nepal! At 17:00 hrs local time @nimsdai and team summited K2, teaming up with Mingma G and team and a member from SST Sona Sherpa,” Nirmal Purja often known as Nims Dai wrote on Instagram on Saturday afternoon.
“Nepali climbers have made history again. For the first time in the history of winter climbing, Nepali climbers reached the top of Mt. K2 (The second highest mountain in the world). Congratulations to our Nepali climbers,” Mira Acharya, an officer in Nepal Department of Tourism wrote in her Facebook put up.
Located in Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir, K2 was the final amongst the world’s 14 tallest mountains- all greater than 8,00zero meters that had not been climbed throughout winter.
