Everest South Side Expedition:  Indian & Nepalese Army


 Current Nepal Time

17 more Summiters from the Indian & Nepalese Army expedition!

A historic number of mountaineering expedition teams from different countries in the world have been flocked in Sagarmatha (Mt. Everest) base camp in a bid to scale the highest mountain in the world on the historic occasion of Mt. Everest Golden Jubilee Celebration. The first team to scale Mt. Everest has been Indo Nepal Army Everest Massif Expedition Team.

Update 5/28/2003: More sad news on Everest and somewhat strange reporting again. Yesterday, EverestNews.com received a report from this team of a death of a member of their expedition. Today that news has apparently been released to the Nepal newspaper by the expedition but apparently has not been released or at least is not reported yet by the Ministry. Therefore, we are holding those details... More to follow.

The Following 6 Nepalese Army, 6 Indian Army  & 5 Sherpas of "Joint Indo- Nepal Army Everest Massif Expedition" team have been successful to climb the summit of 8848m.high Sagarmatha (Mt. Everest on 26 May 2003 at 04:15 AM-05.05    AM.
