A Himalayan mountain resort, Valheim, India, is the latest destination for an international mountaineer to visit as the Nepalese government looks to build a new national mountain tourism hub in the region.
In a video posted on the website of the Himalayas National Geographic Society (HNS), the company that manages the resort, which has hosted the Everest Base Camp for nearly a decade, an elderly Tibetan man is seen climbing the mountain with the help of an old woman.
According to the video, the mountain climber, whose name has not been revealed, is part of a group of five to seven men who have completed the arduous route in under an hour.
The group of three women and a child were part of the expedition as well.
The mountain is about 2,500 meters (9,600 feet) above sea level.
It is the tallest peak in the world.
The Nepaleses have hosted several mountaineers including two American mountaineurs and a British climber.
The Nepalesis have hosted Everest Base camp since 2003.
The resort was founded by a Chinese businessman in the late 1970s and has hosted a number of successful mountaineings.
The HNS website states that the resort is “committed to sustainable tourism, providing a high standard of living for the Nepali people.”
