Record Breaking Sherpa climbs Everest for WWF Nepal.
We just wanted to highlight the excellent project of APA SHERPA, a Nepali sherpa who has climbed Mt. Everest a record 18 times. On his 19th ascent which started on 3 April 2009, he is promoting WWF Nepal’s “Climate for Life” campaign by taking a banner to the 8,848m summit at the top of the world stating “Stop Climate Change – Let the Himalayas Live!” and a metal vase containing 400 Buddhist offerings. This hero of Himalayan mountaineering knows more than most the effects of climate change on the mountain environment and is the perfect person to highlight the plight of the Himalayan glacial regions. Go to the WWF Nepal website to get the full story and support APA SHERPA in this great project.
