Katmandu - Jedan Britanac je paraglajderom leteo iznad planinskog vrha Mont Everest i postao prvi čovek koji je na taj način osvojio vrh Himalaja, saopšteno je juče u Katmanduu. Bir Grils (32) je u ponedeljak leteo 140 metara iznad najvišeg vrha sveta ( 8.850 metara), pošto je paraglajderom poleteo iz sela na području Kumbu, gde se nalazi Mont Everest.

- Bilo je neverovatno iskustvo - ispričao je Grils i dodao da je mogao da gleda dole ka vrhu. Grils je pisac i spiker na televiziji. Gotovo 2.000 ljudi se popelo na Mont Everest. Prvi je bio Novozelanđanin Edmund Hilari, koji se 1953. sa svojim vodičem Tenzingom Norgajom popeo na najviši vrh na planeti.

KATHMANDU, May 18 (Reuters) - A British paraglider has flown over Mount Everest, becoming the first man to do so, his agency said on Friday. Bear Grylls, 32, flew 140 metres (460 feet) above the world's highest peak at 8,850 metres (29,035 feet) on Monday after taking off on a powered paraglider from a village in the Khumbhu region where Everest is located, Explore Himalaya agency said. "Amazing and nervous," Grylls told reporters when asked how he felt about his mission. "It was an incredible experience." A writer and TV presenter from Ramsbury in Britain, Grylls was able to look down at Everest as he circled above some of the mightiest peaks of the Himalayas. "Bear Grylls has become the first man to fly over Mount Everest by powered paraglider," Suman Pandey, president of Explore Himalaya, told Reuters. Twenty-three climbing expeditions are trying to scale Mount Everest from the Nepali side in the current climbing season which began in March. The mountain can also be climbed from Tibet. Nearly 2,000 people have scaled the mountain since it was first conquered by New Zealander Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa in 1953.
