Marking the day of the first ascent of Mount Everest by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary, May 29, the Outdoor Adventure Center Nepal is hosting its OAC Mountain Festival  as a way of looking back on this year’s spring climbing season.

Part of the festival’s stated goals is to help create an environment to respect and honour the guiding profession and mountaineering sport. Though catered to mountaineering professionals, the event is open to one and all.

Climbing legend, Kami Rita Sherpa, who  recently broke the record for most ascents to the Mount Everest summit, will be present at the event along with other acclaimed personalities from different sectors. The festival will include an obstacle course challenge, the presentation of photos and videos from expeditions, storytelling, an interaction session, food-drinks-music, and the swap and sale of expedition gears.

The event will be held at Outdoor Adventure Center Nepal, located inside the premises of Godavari Alumni Association (GAA) Hall, Thamel.
