Challenging Mt. Everest at old age

Looks like Mt. Everest is the only place for Nepali to break records. Last month Appa Sherpa broke his own record of 18 accents by climbing it for the 19th time. I don’t know if it is already logged in the Guinness World Records but there are other attempts related to Mt. Everest waiting to be recorded in the book.

On 25 May 2008 Min Bahadur Sherchan reached the top of Mt. Everest at the age of 76 and he is waiting to get entry as the oldest person to climb the peak the World Record book. I hope it will occur before Shailendra Kumar Upadhyay climb the peak at the age of 80. Well, Min Bahadur, born in 1931 (1988 BS), won’t rest either; he is planning to climb it again before he turns 84. Sherchan, has broken the earlier record set by a 71-year-old Japanese man named Kat Katsusuke Yanagisawa, a school teacher, who climbed the Everest the previous year.

Let’s wish all the best to Sherchan for his effort to climb the highest peak and enter in the world record book.
