TWO Myanmar mountaineers reached the summit of Mt Everest yesterday, becoming the first Myanmar nationals to scale the world’s highest mountain.
Pyae Phyo Aung and Win Ko Ko set their feet on the summit at 7.07am MST yesterday morning, according to a Facebook posting of the Htoo Foundation which sponsored the climb.
U Tay Za, Chairman of the Htoo foundation, congratulated the achievement of the climbing team and also expressed thanks to Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services, for his congratulations as well.
At the summit, the two climbers planted the State Flag and the flag of Tay Za’s conglomerate, the Htoo Group of Companies.
Nyi Nyi Aung, a third member of the team, could not complete the mission due to health problems.
U Tay Za, who is also Chairman of the Myanmar Trekking and Mountaineering Federation, also expressed thanks to the third climber for his assistance to the other two while staying at the base camp. He also said that he welcomed the achievement of the three climbers who have brought pride to the country with honour.—GNLM
