Yesterday, we had a pretty tough day. We climbed for 15 hrs non stop in an extreme weather conditions with the wind speed of more than 75 km/hr. Spent more than 3 hrs finding the way/route on the glacier.#nimsdai #BremontProjectPossible #14peaks7months pic.twitter.com/w2TNILtmtr
Starting from Everest to Cho Oyu, Dhaulagiri to Kangchendzönga, he has managed to conquer the peak of every mountain top in the world with a height of over 8,000 meters in a record time of 6 months and 6 days.
While we’re struggling to climb a flight of stairs without running out of breath, Nirmal Purja has really made us proud by climbing 14 peaks in the shortest record time possible.
