CLIMB­ING en­thu­si­asts from the North-east who have scaled Mount Ever­est are among those in­vited to an event cel­e­brat­ing ties be­tween Nepal and Scot­land. Aberdeen’s award-win­ning 8848 Restau­rant is host­ing the friend­ship event at its Union Street premises in part­ner­ship with the Or­gan­i­sa­tion of Nepalese Cul­ture and Wel­fare. Nepal’s am­bas­sador to the UK Dr Durga Ba­hadur Subedi and Aberdeen Lord Provost Bar­ney Crock­ett will at­tend the event.

The restau­rant is named af­ter Ever­est’s high­est peak. More than 60 guests will have the op­por­tu­nity to find out more about Nepal and build re­la­tion­ships.

The restau­rant’s di­rec­tor Kr­ish Bhet­wal said: “We also want this to be an op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to find out about Nepal, the cul­ture and the coun­try as a whole.

“In ad­di­tion, we wanted to thank climbers who have sup­ported the lo­cal econ­omy in Nepal.

“We are hon­oured the Nepal am­bas­sador for the UK is mak­ing the ef­fort to visit the North-east. We’re hop­ing the event plays its own small part in strength­en­ing links.” There will be speeches dur­ing the event, which is be­ing held on Sun­day.
