Seven Summit Treks’ rope fixing team scaled the historic summit of Mt Everest (8848.86m) on Friday, becoming the first climbers of the spring season to summit the world’s highest peak from the Nepal side.

Ten climbing Sherpas from Seven Summit Treks under the management of Expedition Operators of Nepal (EOA) reached the top of Mt Everest at 08:15 pm yesterday.

"With this, the pursuit of Everest begins and is open for all the climbers. The summit team is currently descending, and we are now all set for the Everest summit bid with our international climbers at the base camp and high camp ," said the Seven Summit Treks in a press note on Friday.

The climbing team members included  Dendi Sherpa, Tenjing Gyalje Sherpa, Namgel Dorjee Tamang, ⁠Suk Bahadur Tamang, Dawa Rinje Sherpa, ⁠Dawa Sherpa, ⁠Rinji Sherpa, ⁠Pemba Tashi Sherpa,  Pam Dorje Sherpa, and ⁠Lakpa Sherpa.

Meanwhile, the team has also expressed its gratefulness to the Sagarmatha Pollution Control Committee (SPCC) and Icefall doctors for fixing ropes up to Camp 2, and EOA for the support and collaboration in fixing the route above.

Earlier on 6 May, a veteran rope fixing team comprising seven Sherpas had also fixed the ropes on Lhotse 8516m, the neighboring peak of Mt Everest.

As many as 414 climbers from 41 mountaineering teams have received permission to climb Mt Everest this spring season.

Supreme Court of Nepal has issued a mandamus to the government to cap the number of permits to climb the world's highest peak.
