Kathmadu: Nepali film actress Nisha Adhikari has successfully climbed the world’s highest peak Mount Everest on Tuesday morning.
Adhikari stepped on the summit at about 8 this morning. Adhikari also became the first Nepali actress to summit the world’s highest peak.
Actress Adhikari and actor Arjun Karki had left for the base camp on April 9. However, their Everest ambition was dragged into controversy after it was discovered that they did not have the permission to climb the peak and were taken as high altitude workers. The hurdles were later cleared after Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation said that it will not stop the duo from climbing the Everest given that their expedition itinerary does not breach the existing rules.
Actor Karki had reached the summit on Monday.
