On April 22, 1993, Pasang Lhamu Sherpa created mountaineering history by becoming the first Nepalese woman to blaze a trail to the summit of Mt. Everest, the highest peak in the world. Pasang Lhamu’s achievement has not only proved that Nepalese women are as brave and strong as their men, but also shown their determined and resolute character. Pasang Lhamu was extremely committed to her dream, the reason why she succeeded and, in so doing, did her nation and her people proud. For many Nepalese women, Pasang Lhamu is a fugue that they will try and emulate for a long, long time.
