  Namgya Sherpa Summits Everest without bottled oxygen


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 Guller
