The widows of two sherpa climbers, who died on Mount Everest, will try to climb the world’s highest mountain to complete the unfinished ascents of their husbands and hopefully inspire other single women, the pair said on Wednesday.
Furdiki Sherpa’s husband died while fixing ropes for his foreign clients on the 8,850-metre (29,035-ft) mountain in 2013.
She said she would make a joint bid in May with Nima Doma Sherpa, wife of one of the 16 sherpas killed in an avalanche near the base camp in 2014.
