By A Staff Reporter,Kathmandu, Feb. 27: Choreographer Chhiring Sherpa, who secured her name in the Guinness Book of World Records by achieving the highest dance record at Kala Patthar in Solukhumbu, received the certificate from President Ramchandra Paudel on Monday.

Chhiring, along with Jagadish Gurung Aka (JD Tamu), holds the record for ‘Highest Altitude choreographed Dance on land (Pair)’. They danced at a height of 5,278 metres on November 17, 2022.

President Paudel handed over the certificate to Sherpa at the Office of the President and congratulated her. He also extended his best wishes to Chhiring, who is set to climb Mount Everest in the spring of 2024 (April-May).

“The President remarked that this achievement by a woman is a matter of pride for the country,” said Chhiring. 

Chhiring said that her Mount Everest climb is dedicated to the Sherpa community members who lost their lives while climbing the mountain. Chhiring has received mountain climbing training from the Pasang Lhamu Foundation and is preparing to climb Mount Everest with the slogan ‘My Voice for Sherpa Climbers’ under the 8K Expedition.

Born in Dudhakunda Municipality-6 of Solukhumbu district, Chhiring currently resides in Kathmandu.  She has acted in dozens of music videos and is the first actress from the Sherpa community.  She did the lead role in Sherpa film ‘Tinchhen Phama’ and is making her debut on the Nepali silver screen with the film ‘Karsang’.

 ‘Tinchhen Phama’ also received an award from former President Bidya Devi Bhandari. Additionally, Chiring is the winner of the television reality show ‘Dancing Star Nepal Season 2’ and has experience in organising Sherpa community beauty pageants.
