Kathmandu, March 19

As the season for climbing Mt. Everest is approaching, icefall doctors have arrived in the area to facilitate climbing. According to Mira Acharya, director of the tourism department, seven expert teams have been deployed to pave the way for climbing Everest.

She informed that they have already left the base camp. According to the Everest Pollution Control Committee, the team includes Palden Namgel Sherpa, Aang Sarki Sherpa, Migma Temba Sherpa, Dawa Jangbu Sherpa, Dawa Nuru Sherpa, Nigma Wangchu Sherpa and Phu Chhetar Sherpa. They are being accompanied by two Wes Camp support staff.

The Icefall Doctor works to clear the ascent route. In that process, the work of maintaining infrastructure is also done at this stage. At the same time, the work of pulling the rope is done at the same time. The climber climbs to the top, following the path taken by the Icefall Doctor.

That is why this pre-climbing work is considered risky and even important. Experienced and expert climbers are employed for this purpose.

Icefall doctors have been staying in the mountains for about three months. The team deployed in the Khumbu area works on three mountaineering routes. Mount Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse are climbed through the Everest base camp. It is planned to take the climbers to the peak from the second week of April if the weather is favorable this year. Now, the Department of Tourism has opened the permit.
