Thank You UNESCO

UNESCO Kathmandu shared my photograph at its social media platforms.

It was a post that gave information about Sagarmatha (Everest) Natural Park and drew attention to climate change.




































Here is the text of the post :


Did you know?


Sagarmatha National Park is one of the two World Heritage Sites inscribed under natural sites in Nepal. It encompasses the infinitely majestic snow-capped peaks of the Great Himalayan Range, including the world’s highest, Mt. Sagarmatha (Everest).


The carefully preserved natural heritage and the dramatic beauty of the high, geologically young mountains and glaciers were recognized by UNESCO with the inscription of the park as a World Heritage Site in 1979. Including the highest point on the Earth’s surface, Mount Sagarmatha (Everest; 8,848 m) and an elevation range of 6,000 m, Sagarmatha National Park (SNP) covers an area of 124,400 hectares in the Solu-Khumbu district of Nepal.


Globally known for its pristine preserved natural beauty, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is experiencing accelerated glacial retreat due to rising temperatures, and climate change is directly affecting the local communities and downstream areas.
