A team of NatoGeo climbers carried out essential maintenance on the world's highest weather station at Bishop Rock (8810m) when they stood at top Mt Everest (8848.86 m).
Guided by Shangri-La Nepal Treks, under the guidance of climate scientist Baker Perry from Appalachian State University, four Sherpa climbers scaled Mt Everest and successfully fixed the Bishop Rock weather station. Likewise, they even brought down the old station which remained dysfunctional at Balcony area.
