Two Australians siblings create world record to reach Everest base camp

Kathmandu: Two Australian brothers have created a world record by reaching the  Everest Base Camp elevated at an altitude of 5364 meters.

According to Ganga Raj Thapa, the Managing Director of the Nepal Hiking Team, that organized the expedition said the two Australian brothers, three-year-old Zachary Kingsley Allen and five-year-old Gabriel Robert Allen have set a new record by becoming the youngest climbers to reach the Everest base camp in Nepal.

The brothers had reached the Everest Base Camp last Saturday. The two kids were accompanied by their parents, Graham David Allen and Shareen Anne Pote to the Everest base camp.

The height of the Everest Base Camp is higher than the highest mountains of three other continents such as Mont Blanc (4,807 m) in Europe, Vinson Massif (4,892 m) in Antarctica, and Puncak Jaya (4,884 m) in Oceania.

The two brothers had flown to Lukla Airport along with their parents on April 5 to trek to the Base camp and had returned to Kathmandu after reaching the base camp.
