Arun Treks & Expeditions are
very excited to announce that one of our star family members, Mr. Namgya
Sherpa has summited Sagarmatha (Everest) without the use of supplemental
oxygen. Phone calls and e-mails are non-stop this morning both here in Austin
and in Kathmandu as news flows down the mountain. Namgya is a true mountaineer
with a heart of gold. Namgya was a huge part of the success for Team Everest
03, raising awareness for the potential of people with disabilities around the
world. His kindness to others, with and without disabilities, treating all
people with equality, is surely something we can all learn from. Namgya made
many dreams for others come true last year, and this year 2004, Namgya
realized his own dream. To climb Sagarmatha without oxygen.
Namgya is 33 years old, from
the village of Kyapla, in the Taplejung district of Eastern Nepal - very, very
close to Kangchenjunga, the Worlds 3rd Highest mountain. Gary
