Staff Reporter Jun 07, 2024

Kathmandu : Tenzing Sherpa, one of Nepal’s pioneering DJs, returned to Kathmandu on Friday after successfully summiting Sagarmatha on May 21 at 4:47 am. He also attempted a Guinness World Record for the highest-altitude DJ concert on May 17, organizing a DJ party at Everest Camp II, located at 6,400 meters.

In late March, he announced the ‘Everest Expedition 2024’ with the slogan ‘Stop Global Warming, Save the Himalayas’.

According to DJ Tenzing, the expedition’s purpose extends beyond personal achievement; it also seeks to promote tourism and raise awareness about the impact of climate change. “Being one of the first DJs of Nepal, it’s my duty too to promote DJ culture in Nepal, and hence I attempted the world record,” he added.

Earlier, Hit Bahadur Tamang, Minister of Culture, Tourism, and Civil Aviation, commended DJ Tenzing for his efforts to raise public awareness through this expedition. Minister Tamang presented DJ Tenzing with the national flag of Nepal, expressing government support for his endeavor.

Hailing from Solukhumbu, DJ Tenzing has been organizing musical programs in the Solukhumbu region for the past 12 years, particularly on International Everest Day, commemorating the historic ascent of Mt Everest on 29 May 1953.
