Anish Luitel; a 23-year-old student, resident of Jhapa district would scale the world's highest peak Mt Everest carrying a copy of the Nepal's New Constitution. He will attempt to climb Mt Everest where he will be unfurling the country's national flag and displaying a copy of the Nepal's New Constitution to mark the Student Union's anniversary.
Asian Trekking is organising the Eco Everest Expedition (2016) under the leadership of expedition doctor Dr. Nima Namgyal Sherpa and sirdar Nanga Dorje Sherpa.
The expedition will be following the Eco Everest Expedition 2008 Model and the focus will be on climbing in an eco-sensitive manner, bringing old garbage, in addition to their own, and all human waste produced on the mountain down to base camp for proper disposal. The expedition will once again be using highly successful alternative energy solutions like the Parabolic Solar Cookers, SteriPENs for water puirification, Clean Mountain Cans and Restop Bags

To commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the first ascent of Mt. Everest by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgey Sherpa, we have named this year's Eco Everest Expedition in honour of this important day.
This year also the expedition is being led by my son Dawa Steven Sherpa and as always he will continue his clean up campaign.
Furthermore, he has also been nominated by Expedition Operators Association of Nepal as one of the two task force members responsible for overseeing the rope fixing and coordinating summit schedules of the various expeditions on Mt. Everest and Mt. Lhotse. I hope that by coordinating and communicating between the teams we will be able to avoid most of the congestion and thereby reduce accidents and deaths.
This year, Eco Everest Diamond Jubilee Celebration Expedition has two teams with a total of 22 members and 38 sherpas and Cooks. Under Dawa Steven's leadership our Expedition Doctor and Base camp Manager is Dr. Nima Namgyal Sherpa, our Sirdar is Naga Dorjee Sherpa and Head Cook is Mr. Chandra Tamang. We have 25 Climbing Sherpas in total and 11 Base Camp and Camp 2 cooks. Asian Trekking is also happy to be deeply involved in the planning of the festivities and sponsoring some of the celebration events in the Khumbu.
