Apa’s campaign to save the Himalayas
After setting a world record by successfully ascending the Mt Everest for 21 times, Apa Sherpa is currently endeavoring to set another record by covering a distance of 1,700 kilometers on foot with a noble mission — to save the Himalayas (The Great Himalayan Trail).
This is one of the world’s highest and longest trekking trails. Apa aims to cover all the 20 Himalayan (east-west) districts of the country in 120 days. Apa’s campaign will be telecast in “Third Eye” on Sagarmatha Television (STV) on Friday at 9:30 pm. The program will be re-telecast on Saturday and Sunday at 2:30 pm and 5:30 pm. The program will also highlight the views and opinions of Apa and his team besides the impact of the climate change in the Himalayas.
