ski descent from the Camp III of Mt Manaslu

Three Nepali mountaineers successfully conducted a ski descent from the Camp III of Mt Manaslu, the world’s eighth highest mountain, in this autumn climbing season.
Mingma David Sherpa, Tashi Sherpa and Krishna Thapa Magar became the first Nepali skiers to descend the height of 7,500 meters on Mt Manaslu (8,163 m)
The team which arrived in Kathmandu after spending 35 days in the western Nepal informed that the skiing event was conducted on October 15-16.
“It is the world’s highest as well as adventurous skiing event conducted by Nepali youth,” team leader Magar claimed.
The team was dedicated to promote skiing in different mountainous regions as the adventure cum recreational sport could be the best way to promote Nepal’s tourism in the global market, Mingma, a certified mountain guide from Taplejung, shared.
The team also taught skiing skills to some Nepali expedition teams at 5, 800 metres. “The participants shared that skiing on Mt Manaslu was adventurous due to its physical structure, height and slope,” the team leader added.
