Due to a surge in Covid-19 infections, Kathmandu has been partially shut down since May, with 622,640 infections and 8,772 deaths so far in the country.

They claim that Tsang Yin-Hung, a Hong Kong resident who holds the record for the quickest female climb of Mount Everest, and scores of other Chinese mountaineers are unable to leave Nepal due to Beijing's Covid-19 limitations.

A rise of illnesses has been reported in Nepal, especially at Everest's base camp, causing many countries to impose travel restrictions on the country. Nepal has one of the highest daily infection rates in the world, at more than 24%.

After the mountaineering, the season started, and new breakouts in Nepal, the travel ban was enforced.

In 25hours and 50 minutes last month, the 44-year-old Tsang, who ascended Mount Everest, claimed that it was tougher to return home than to climb to its 8,848,86-meter top. 

“I think the summit climb for me was possible and achievable,” she told Reuters at her hotel in Kathmandu. “But going back home (looks) hopeless. There is no way to go back.”

Officials in Nepal claim that two weekly flights from China have been approved, but that they are now unavailable.

In response to a Reuters query on the paucity of flights, the Chinese embassy in Kathmandu did not react quickly.

"There are no flights (from Nepal) to any place in China or Hong Kong,” she added.

More than 30 Chinese climbers were stranded in Kathmandu, according to Tashi Lakpa Sherpa, a senior official with Seven Summit Treks.
