A sad day in Nepalese mountaineering history as Chhewang Nima Sherpa was buried in an avalanch on Baruntse, a popular 7129m peak in the Everest region, on October 23, while busy fixing ropes to the summit at just over 7000m. His body has not been recovered and the search has been called off. He has an impressive list of achievements such as summitting Everest 19 times, Cho Oyo 6 times and Shishapangma 2 times. He is second only to Apa Sherpa in the record number of Everest summits.
