Spirits Of Dead Climbers

KATHMANDU : Spirits of dead climbers haunt Mount Everest and funeral rites need to be performed for their deliverance, the Sherpa who whizzed to the summit in record time says.

Pemba Dorji Sherpa, 26, who scaled the 8,848-metre high peak in 8 hours 10 minutes on May 21, told AFP he saw black shadows near the summit on his way up.

When I was on my way to setting the record, I stopped briefly at three points between 8,000 and 8,748 metres to drink tea, Pemba said.

When I stopped at a mound of rocks I saw some spirits in the form of black shadows coming towards me, stretching their hands and begging for something to eat, he said.

I think those were the spirits of the many mountaineers killed during and after the ascent of Mount Everest.

The bodies of many of those who died are still on the mountain and one climber who died from an accidental fall is still hanging from a rope, Pemba said.

More than 200 people have died attempting to reach the highest place on Earth.
Pemba, a Buddhist, said he wore a locket from Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader the Dalai Lama.

I was not scared of the spirits thanks to a locket I had of the Dalai Lama and an amulet presented by the senior monks of the Buddhist monastery in the Everest region before starting the climb, Pemba said.

Ang Tshering Sherpa, president of the Nepal Mountaineering Association, endorsed Pemba’s proposal to perform mass rites for the Everest dead.

We believe in the existence of the spirits of the dead and feel the need to perform death rituals, he said. – AFP
