Nepalese mountaineers seal first ever winter summit of K2.

A team of ten Nepalese climbers that made the first winter summit of K2, the world’s second tallest peak, arrived in the country to a heroes’ welcome on January 26. The men, who climbed the 8,611 metre (28,251 foot) K2 peak on January 16, attributed their success to team spirit and a resolve to raise their country’s pride. The mountain, that straddles the Pakistan-China border, was first climbed in 1954, but never before in the winter.
