Rosha Basnet of National News Agency, Kalpana Maharjan of Mega Television , Rojita Buddhacharya of Nepal Television and Deurali Chamling, a freelancer, reached atop the Everest, said the official.

However, another climber Priya Laxmi Karki of News 24 Television, abandoned her bid from Camp III, he added.

The journalists, aged between 25 and 32, are safe and have reached the base camp after their success, said Shrestha.

The women journalists had reached the Everest base camp last month with a slogan Unified Voice for Equity'.
