Nepal has been celebrating Everest Day on 29th of May every year since 2008 when the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation decided to do so. The day, of course, is celebrated to commemorate the first ever successful ascent of the world’s highest peak by Tenzing Norgay and Sir. Edmond Hilary on the same day in the year 1953.  The day is celebrated not just in Nepal but is observed internationally.

Recently, US Nepal Climbers Association Inc. (UNCAI), who had been celebrating this day since its instigation in 2008 has expressed dismay over the overlap of Nepal Day on Everest Day.

The press release by US Nepal Climbers Association Inc. on 24th of May stated that Federation of Indigenous People of Nepal and America (FIPNA) had conspired to diminish the prestige of Everest Day by declaring the day as Nepal day and also wrongly marking the name of President of UNCAI as a member of FIPNA. 

Not just that, UNCAI also expressed disapproval over FIPNA’s act of collecting financial donation for marking Nepal day. 

Following the chain of events, Everest Summiteers Association also expressed its concerns over the recent events lending its support to UNCAI.
