Video: K2 winter expedition team sings Nepali national anthem before reaching the peak

Kathmandu, January 24

Mountaineer Nirmal Purja today released a new video of the K2 winter expedition team singing the Nepali national anthem, minutes before reaching the peak.

"Brother to brother, shoulder to shoulder, we walked together to the summit whilst singing the Nepali national anthem. We all stopped around 10m before reaching the summit to huddle and make our final steps together as a team to mark this historical feat," Purja, popularly knows as Nimsdai, shared on his social media.

On January 16, ten Nepali climbers scripted history in mountain-climbing by making the first ever winter ascent of the world’s second highest peak.
