KATHMANDU, Oct. 22 (Xinhua) -- Qatari royal family member Sheikh Mohammed Abdulla M. A. Al Thani is among six climbers who are set to climb Mt. Amadablam in the Mt Qomolangma region, a company organizing their expedition said.

A week after an expedition team comprising Bahraini Prince Sheikh Mohamed Hamad Mohamed Al Khalifa scaled Mt. Manaslu in western Nepal, a royal family member of another Gulf country is attempting to climb another Himalayan mountain. The ascent of Mt. Manaslu was the first expedition of Nepal's mountains with a height of over 8,000 meters this autumn.

The 6,814m-high Mt. Amadablam is among the busiest Himalayan Mountains in Nepal during the autumn season with hordes of climbers making attempts to climb this mountain every year.

"The expedition team comprising Qatari royal family members arrived in Kathmandu on October 20," Iswari Paudel, general manager at Himalayan Guides Nepal Treks and Expedition, the company organizing their expedition, told Xinhua on Thursday. "After spending a week at Kathmandu-based hotel in quarantine, they will depart for Mt. Amadablam."

He said that the company has already submitted all necessary documents to the Department of Tourism, to get climbing permits. "After they are tested negative for coronavirus during their stay in quarantine, the tourism department will provide permit," Paudel said. According to the department, the company has sought permission to start the expedition from October 27 for 45 days. Enditem
