The Everest Summiteers Association (ESA), has been established to bring together summiteers who have achieved the ultimate glory of reaching the peak of Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the World. We strive to use our strength, passion and intimate knowledge in an untied campaign to raise awareness about environmental, social, cultural and safety issues that arise with mountain climbing, not just in Everest, but throughout the entire Himalaya.
In the year 1953, May 29 Late Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenjing Norgay Sherpa reached the peak of Mountain Everest for the first time. Since then more than two thousand six hundred ninety three (2,693) mountaineers have successfully climbed the Mountain Everest from its South face till date. Had we had considered numbers of helpers and assistants helping the mountaineers to reach the peak, there would have been the heap of waste materials above the base camp. However, with the vision to clean the Everest, there are many campaigns going on after 1990 A.D. Late Sir Edmund Hillary had expressed that Mt. Everest needs rest for some time.
In the loving memory of our founder member and world record holder Late Babu Chhiri Sherpa. Everest Summiteers Association (ESA) is inaugurating Babu Chhiri Memorial Museum coinciding with World Tourism week on 25th September 2005. During the inauguration ceremony, a magazine dedicated to Babu Chhiri's life and his achievements is being published and will be distributed to all the distinguished guests, families and friends, sponsors, supporters and well wishers. The magazine contains stories by many Nepali climbers, Everest expedition records in chronological order, stories about some extra-ordinary achievements in the field of mountaineering and is decorated with breath-taking photographs of the Everest region by David Breashears.
