Search for Tenzen Sherpa to begin next year

Kathmandu: The search for the world-record climber Tenzen Sherpa, who went missing in an avalanche on October 7,  is likely to commence next year according to Seven Summit, the company affiliated with Sherpa.

At least 8 Sherpas will be mobilized to venture to the mountains in Shishapangma to search for Tenzen, who set a world record on July 27 by climbing 14 mountains above 8,000 meters in the shortest time.

Tenzen is said to have been trapped and buried in an avalanche while ascending the mountain Shishapangma, the 14th mountain in Tibet.

Though intensive search and rescue operations were immediately initiated soon after the happening of avalanche, however, the efforts of Seven Summit were foiled.

Despite the request to all stakeholders of the company for continued support in search and rescue operations, the Chinese side did not cooperate as expected according to the sources.

The Seven Summit Treks had organized the summit of Tenzen and his team to climb 14 mountains above 8000 meters creating a world record of climbing 14 mountains in three months and two days.
