Lhakpa Nuru Sherpa, 29, has begun to acclimatize at the foot of Mount Everest in preparation for climbing Mount Baruntse in October for the first expedition in Nepal since the beginning of the pandemic and the subsequent closure in March.

This time, however, Nuru and the five members of his team will not guide foreign climbers but will be part of the "Nepal Tourism Recovery Expedition 2020", which seeks to show the world that Nepalese guides and Himalayas are ready to receive tourists. EFE-EPA
