Mattikhan Lumley View
The Gurkhas have honoured Joanna Lumley by naming a sacred hill after their best ambassador and advocate to Her Majesty's government.
For a woman the people of Nepal regard as a goddess, no place was more fitting for Joanna Lumley to visit than a hill where many deities are worshipped. But the 6,000ft hill south of the town of Pokhara now has even greater significance for the 63-year-old actress - because it has been named after her. Filled with gratitude for the untiring work she has done for retired gurkhas by winning them the right to live in England, the old warriors and their supporters have named the hill Mattikhan Lumley View.
