"Nepal Civil Service Employee's First Mt. Everest Expedition 2011"
The expedition had been organized by the institute for Mountaineering Development Commitee under the Minitery of Tourism and Cicil Avation, Government of Nepal. The expedition team had been led by the then Secretary (Present Chief Secretary) Hon. Mr. Lilamani Poudyal. He had played an important leadership role to make the mission possible.
The total of nine members of 15 had successfully reached the peak of Mt. Everest in the early morning of 18 May, 2011 despite bad weather condition. The success has changed the negative notion toward civil servants proving that they can do anything though it is challenging. A new world record was even set as the first Civil Servants' Expedition to clinch Mt. Everest, which itself is a matter of pride. The successful members of civil servants to clinch Mt. Everest are Tulsi Ram Bhandari, Surath Pokherei, Hari Pd. Guragain, Santa K. Maharjan, Hari Dhakal, Khim L. Gautam, Gyanendra K. Shresta, Padam Bdr. Bhandari and Subir Shresta. (Text: Post of Nepal).
