The ten-member K2 winter expedition team arrived in Kathmandu on Tuesday after a successful historical accent on January 16. Hundreds of people gathered at the Tribhuvan International Airport to cheer the team and to celebrate their success.

Legendary climbers Mingma Gyalje Sherpa and Nirmal Purja (Nimsdai) along with other Nepali Sherpa climbers stood atop Mt K2 (8,611m) in the Karakoram massif, the first-ever winter ascent of the world’s second-highest peak.

From the airport, the team headed towards Tinkune, Naya Baneshwor, Maitighar, Bhadrakali, Sundhara, Kantipath and were felicitated at a function at the Nepal Tourism Board at Bhrikutimandap. They were accompanied by a motorcycle rally.
