Day 40

The Climate Smart Trek led by Apa Sherpa arrived at Barhabise, Sindhupalchowk today, completing 530km (40 days) of its 1700km long trek (120 days) on the Great Himalaya Trail (GHT) to raise awareness on 'Climate Change in the Himalayas', and to promote the development of the GHT to build the climate resilience in Nepal's most vulnerable communities.

On the occasion Apa Sherpa said, "I have a message for my fellow Nepalis. Climate Change destroyed most of my property back in the Dig Tsho Glacial Lake outburst of 1985. I successfully climbed Mt Everest for the first time in 1990, and since then I have scaled it 21 times in 21 years. Tourism gave me back my life." The pro-poor sustainable development GHT project aims to address the impacts of Climate Change in the Himalayas.

The core GHT-CSCT team which includes Apa Sherpa (21 times Mt. Everest summiteer), Dawa Steven Sherpa (Mountaineer and Climate ambassador), Saurav Dhakal (British Council International Climate Champion and Journalist) and Samir Jung Thapa (photographer) began its journey on 15 January 2012.
