Everest Expedition – Sri Lanka 2016 T-Shirt
That story has been a broadcasting legend for decades, but no Sri Lankan has tried the daunting climb – until now.
An experienced mountaineering duo, Jayanthi Kuru-Utumpala and Johann Peries, will be the first Sri Lankans to attempt the summit of Mt. Everest this Spring.
They have both individually and as a team successfully completed some of the world’s most challenging treks in Asia, Africa and Latin America – not to mention all key peaks in Sri Lanka.
Mount Everest is located in the Mahalangur mountain range in Nepal and Tibet, and its peak is 8,848 metres (29,029 ft) above sea level. It has so far been reached by over 4,000 people from many countries.
Professionally, Jayanthi is a women’s rights and gender expert while Johann is a hair and make-up designer and performing artiste. They are dedicating this climb to their families, to the causes they advocate (conservation, gender equality and healthy living), and to every child, woman and man of Sri Lanka.
