“Two months of hard work has finally paid off,” team leader Sherpa said, adding that the ordeal showed that a successful ascent was possible.
All the climbers have now begun their descent to the lower camps, the team leader added.

According to a climbing record, less than 500 climbers have been able to make it to the K2 summit point.
