Everest summit success for the Gurkhas

Everest summit success for the Gurkhas

Renowned for their incredible bravery, the formidable Gurkhas now have another achievement to add to their long line of celebrated successes: they've reached the summit of Mount Everest.

In fact, the Gurkha Expedition Team were the first people to summit the world's highest mountain in 2017. As the Expedition Chairman, Brigadier Ian Rigden, proudly said "The aim of the expedition was to place a serving Gurkha on the summit of Mt. Everest for the first time. That the team had achieved this by placing 9 Gurkhas and 4 British team members on the summit is a magnificent achievement. They have made history. Their success is due to hard work, self-belief, true teamwork and outstanding team leadership."

Many congratulations to the summiteers and everyone else involved in creating mountaineering history.
