this year’s autumn climbing season in Nepal. The Nepali Government has decided to allow 18 international visitors, including the Prince of Bahrain, to enter Nepal for mountaineering activities. Among the visitors, 15 are from Bahrain, and three are from the United Kingdom.

According to the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, the Prince of Bahrain and other visitors will reach Nepal on charter flights on September 15 to climb Mt.Manaslu and Mt. Lobuche. However, all the climbers must follow the safety recommendations upon their arrival in Nepal. Prince Khalifa is a member of the royal family of the Kingdom of Bahrain and the commander of Bahrain’s Royal Guard.

The expedition members will have to go through COVID-19 safety procedures before beginning their mission, said a senior Nepali official. Mingma Sherpa, of Seven Summit Treks, told AFP the team - including three Britons – would quarantine in a Kathmandu hotel for a week before flying via helicopter to the climbing base camp. More than 50 Sherpas will take part in the expedition, he added.

“Somewhere between the bottom of the climb and the summit is the answer to the mystery why we climb.”
