A large-scale forum was held in Lhasa on May 24 to mark the 50th anniversary for Chinese climbers ascending the Mt Qomolangma for the first time in 1960.

At 04:20 on May 25, 1960, three Chinese mountaineers Wang Fuzhou, Qu Yinhua and Gangbung conquered the world's highest peak Mt Qomolangma from the northern slope for the first time.

Dekyi Drolkar, director of TAR Sports Bureau said:" Those three mountaineers risked their lives to make glorious history for our country in face of various difficulties such as lacking experience and advanced equipments."

In the past 50 years, it is the mountaineering spirit of "Motherland comes first, unity, and selfless dedication" inspiring generations of climbers in Tibet. Nyima Tsering, captain of China Tibet Mountaineering Team said:" We will hand over the mountaineering spirit to serve more citizens."

Guisang, a mountain climber has conquered Mt. Qomolangma twice in 1990 and 1999. As a mountaineering coach, she would like to train more climbers in future.

30 years old Ngawang has climbed atop Mt. Qomolangma for 8 times, he wishes to have more chances to show Tibetans' climbing skills.
