Nisha Adhikari

Nepali movie actress Nisha Adhikari has finally succeed to scale the highest peak of the world Everest or Sagarmatha in Nepali on Tuesday morning at 8 A.M.

Along with this victory, Nisha has also became the first Nepali actress to summit the Everest, highest peak of the world.

Actress Adhikari and actor Arjun Karki along with 12 other crew members left for the base camp on April 9.  However, their Everest ambition was dragged into controversy after it was discovered that they did not have the permission to climb the peak and were taken as high altitude workers. The hurdles were later cleared after Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation said that it will not stop the duo from climbing the Everest given that their expedition itinerary does not breach the existing rules.

Actor Arjun Karki had reached the summit on Monday. The crew will be returning back tomorrow.
