There had been numerous challenges throughout my journey but my focus had always been on reaching the top. I am thankful to Himalaya Airlines for giving me this opportunity for this once in a lifetime experience.” Himalaya’s Everest Expedition began from April 13, 2022 on the eve of Nepali New year and concluded with the successful summit on May 16, 2022.
