Kathmandu: Mountaineers from different parts of the world have continued their ascent to Mt. Everest .A total of 47 climbers have successfully scaled Mt. Everest this week.

A team of 14 rope-fixing climbers stood atop the world's highest peak, becoming the first team of 2017 to reach the summit from south face on May 14. A total of 33 climbers set foot on top of Everest on May 15.

Everest expedition from Nepal’s southern route was delayed this spring season due to bad weather.

The ascent of the 14 rope-fixing climbers paved the way for all the teams to climb Everest this season. The rope fixing task completed on May 11 last year.

A total of 39 expedition teams comprising 373 climbers from various countries have got permission to scale world's highest peak this spring season according to Department of Tourism.

Similarly, some 100 climbers from eight expedition teams, 19 climbers of two teams and 25 climbers of two teams are in final preparation to climb  Lhotse, Nuptse and Ama Dablam respectively.

May is considered best month of spring season to climb Khumbu Himalayas in terms of favorable weather there.

Mt. Everest has already recorded two tragedies including the deaths of famous Swiss climber Ueli Steck and the 86-year-old Nepali climber Min Bahadur Sherchan this year.

More than 19 climbers, including high-altitude guides and helpers ,lost their lives on April 25 in 2015 due to avalanches triggered by the devastating April 25 earthquake.

Meanwhile, US-based South African Ryan Sean Davy, 43,  who tried to climb Everest in Nepal without paying the $11,000 permit fee has been arrested in Kathmandu after walking most of the 154km journey from the mountain's base camp.

Davy climbed alone to a height of 7,300m before being found hiding in a cave by officials ,who confiscated his passport because he did not have a permit to climb Everest.
