Sherpa Stands atop Everest Naked for 3 Minutes

 

Nepali climbing guide Lakpa Tharke upset officials recently by standing on top of Mt. Everest naked. Nepal's top mountaineering body head Ang Tshering Sherpa says "but if he did it, it is very shocking because Sagarmatha is the goddess mother."

Organizers of the climb he participated with did not seem bothered by the incident. "We are planning to file his extraordinary feat for the Guinness Book of World Records." He may be the first to pull off such a feat.

Buddhists in Nepal consider Everest a god. On Saturday, the head of Nepal's Mountaineering Association urged the government to take action against Tharke.

  Not Sherpa?  
 
I think it was Lakpa Tharke who stood atop Everest naked for 3 min, not Sherpa?

  lol  
 
this cracks me up, do you know how long it takes to get up everest. Well im sure everyone in the party at least once took down the pants to leave a little bit more on everest then when they came.

No one in the party was up set. it is a feat if you ask me, considering you need oxigen at the level. and the air is so cold and thin that your slowly dieing from it. So file is as a suacide gone bad, send him for some mental help. LOL
