The government has permitted 22 expeditions to climb Mt Everest this season.
According to the Mountaineering Section at the Tourism Industry Division under the Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation, a total of 227 mountaineers have been permitted to climb the tallest peak on earth this season.
The government has permitted a total of 71 expeditions to attempt different peaks across the country this season. But people involved in adventure tourism say the number of expeditions is lower than that of last year.
“Perhaps mountaineers have keep their plan on hold as they are skeptic about the political situation in the country after 28 May – the deadline for new constitution,” an official at the Tourism Ministry said. Most of the expeditions have already left for respective climbing regions

I just feel like I havent said that enough or emphatically enough. Thank you thank you thank you. You were so wonderful and are such a great friend. My feelings for you go so far beyond our business dealings…you truly are a brother and I appreciate you and all that you have done for me. I dont really have the words to say thanks….they dont really exist. But for what it’s worth, I’m awed by your kindness, generosity, and genuine warmth and compassion. Thanks so much for all. Anyway…I cant say much more….but there it is.

It also decided to waive 50 percent royalty fee for mountaineers climbing Mt Dhaulagiri in 2010 and 2011 to celebrate the golden jubilee of the first ascent of Mt Dhaulagiri.
More than 4,000 climbers have scaled Mt Everest since it was first climbed by New Zealander Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa in 1953. Some 700 of these foreigners are said to be still alive.
“We have decided to waive the visa fees for these mountaineers in 2010 and 2011 as a part of promoting Nepal Tourism Year campaign,” Ranjan Aryal, acting secretary at the Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation (MoTCA) said.
Nepal is celebrating that year 2011 as Nepal Tourism Year campaign and it aims to welcome one million foreign tourists during the year.
All the best!
