News Update March 2013 - George Lowe C.NZ.M. O.B.E

I have been in Nepal for a week and I hear the news that George Lowe passed away on the 20th of March 2013. I have sent condolences from myself and Nepal Trekking to the Himalayan Trust and his family in the UK.

George Lowe was a member of the 1953 Mount Everest Expedition climbing team and continued to work for the Sherpa people in Nepal until recently. He was a founder member of the Himalayan Trust UK and his reputation and work for the Sherpa people is renowned throughout Solukhumbu. He will be missed and remembered by many in Nepal and elsewhere.
