)-- TRAVELHOST, The #1 Travel Magazine
has partnered with Apa Sherpa – the #1 Mt. Everest climber on his record-setting 20th ascent to the top of the world. He has long been recognized by his peers as one of the greatest mountaineers of all time. After reaching the summit, Sherpa said, “I am thankful to have been able to climb Mount Everest for the 20th time. I climbed this year to raise awareness about the Apa Sherpa foundation, which is dedicated to increasing educational opportunities for people in the Himalayan Region. I also climbed to bring attention to the damage done to the Himalayas because of global climate change.”
