Statues of Tenzing, Hillary and Boris to be erected in NTB premises


Minister for Tourism and Civil Aviation Sharat Singh Bhandari on October 11 laid foundation stone to erect man-size statues of tourism heroes late Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, Sir Edmund Hillary and Boris Lissanevitch in the premises of Nepal Tourism Board (NTB).

Tenzing and Hillary were the first summiteers of Mt Everest while Boris had opened Nepal's first tourist standard hotel -- Royal Hotel. Many tourism entrepreneurs regard Boris as a pioneer of Nepali tourism. According to ministry sources, the statue of Boris is being erected also because of the request of non-resident Nepalis.

This is the first time that the government is erecting statues of foreign nationals.
