Trekking in Nepal

Nepal was first opened to the French group in 1950 for Annapurna Expedition. Bill Tilman, Charlie Houston, and their team including Tenzing Norgay Sherpa were the first visitor to Everest (Khumbu) Region. They first ascended the Khumbu Glacier and had to return. Their 1950’s knowledge led to another British reconnaissance expedition in 1951 and 1952 with an unsuccessful climb of Mt. Cho Oyu which was used as a preparation of Mt. Everest. During Autumn 1952 Tenzing Norgay and Swiss mountaineer Raymond Lambert climbed up to 8510m of Mt.Everest. Consequently, In 1953 The world’s highest mountain Mt. Everest (8848 m) was ascended by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa.

After the first Summit of Mt. Everest with the help of Sherpa by New Zealand Mountaineer the tourism in Nepal flourished. Since then, Sherpa was given more priority in Himalaya to date. Similarly, a British Gurkha Officer named Colonel Jimmy Robert who was in the British Embassy in Kathmandu started Trekking in Nepal economically in 1964 AD. With his motivation and influence today we all are here at this position and express our deep gratitude to Mr. Jimmy Robert who is also known as the “Father of Trekking” in Nepal.
