Remember our story last week about a group of Malaysians, including local actor Azhan Rani, who are on an expedition
to fly the Jalur Gemilang
at the Mount Everest base camp (EBC)?
We’re happy to report that the team of twenty-six climbers has completed their mission!
According to a report by Bernama
, the climbers, comprising of 20 Malaysians and six Bruneians, jointly raised the giant Jalur Gemilang
measuring 12 metres by six metres and weighing 11 kilogrammes on 10 September at about 12.05 pm (Malaysian time).
The climbers reportedly took nine days to trek 65 kilometres from Lukla to Gorak Shep, Nepal to complete the feat, which was planned in conjunction with the 62nd National Day and Malaysia Day celebrations.
The expedition was led by Kuala Kubu Bahru Central Region Fire Rescue Academy Fire Department personnel Mohd Fakhrul Munir Mohd Isa, and participated by actor Azhan Rani, Berita Harian reporters Zainuri Misfar and Abdul Razak Raaff; Bernama photographer Mohd Faizol Abdul Aziz; and Kosmo! reporter Norzasrudin Mohamed, among others.
