KATHMANDU: There has been competition to name records in the Mount Everest, the largest peak in the world. Two Sherpa brothers of Nurbuchaur in Makalu VDC in Sankhuwasabha district in eastern Nepal have set a new record in mountaineering by climbing 14 peaks of the world above 8,000 meters.

Climbers Mingma Sherpa and Chhangdawa Sherpa have climbed all 14 peaks. Climber Sherpa family is preparing to write a new record in the near future in the mountaineering sector as well. All six brothers in their family are preparing to scale the world’s highest peak Mt. Everest simultaneously.

According to media reports, four brothers have reached Mt. Everest base camp now and two brothers Mingma and Chhangdawa will leave for there in a few days. There are eight peaks in Nepal out of the 14 peaks of the world above 8,000 meters.

Record holder climber Mingma and Chhangdawa in a press meet on Sunday claimed they were the first Nepali brothers to climb all the 14 peaks of the world above 8,000 meters. They climbed the peaks from 2000 till date.

They have climbed Mt. Everest, Makalu, Lhotse, Broad Peak, Dami Kang, Nanga Parbat, Manaslu, Langtang Lirung, Kanchenjunga, Kanchenjunga G1 and G2, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, K2, and Shisha Pangma.

Mingma climbed the peaks since he was 16 and Chhangdawa since 17. They said their climb to K2 was most risky out of the 14 peaks they climbed in the world.

The Sherpa brothers said they were engaged in climbing for world record rather than for any financial benefit, and added that they were making efforts for registering their names in world record.

As some 31 climbers of the world have climbed all the peaks above 8,000 meters of the world, Mingma was 24th and Chhangdawa was 31st.
