16-Year-Old Chinese Girl Shui Cho Yuan, Makes Historical Summit of Mount Everest
A 16-year-old girl from China named Shui Cho Yuan reached the summit of Mount Everest. She climbed up the mountain’s southern side and achieved this feat at 5:42 a.m. on Monday, May 1st.
Nepal Big Mountain Travel organized a press conference to announce the achievement of Shui Cho Yuan, a Chinese girl who successfully climbed Mount Everest. During the conference, Managing Director Sadurshan Nepal mentioned that Nepal Big Mountain Travel supported and coordinated her climb. Shui Cho Yuan believes she might be the youngest woman to have ever reached the summit of Mount Everest.
Shui Cho Yuan mentioned that her father, Shui Chiang Lei, had successfully climbed the northern side of Mount Everest in 2007, which served as her inspiration.
Shui Cho Yuan described her experience of encountering initial challenges due to unfavorable weather conditions during the climb. However, she shared that the weather was favorable on the day she reached the summit.
Shui Cho Yuan expressed gratitude to the Sherpas for their assistance throughout the climb. She acknowledged that she observed the effects of climate change in the Everest region, which aligns with what she had previously heard. Additionally, she mentioned that they made sure to bring back any used items as they descended from the climb.
According to Ang Chiring Sherpa, the former president of the Nepal Mountaineering Association, there is no legal provision to allow people under the age of 16 to climb Mount Everest.
This year, a special program is being held on the occasion of the 70th year of Everest climbing, and this year, the highest number of climbers have taken permission to climb. This year’s climb started on Saturday.
