Nirmal, Nepali climber has set a new record by climbing all eight mountains over eight thousand meters in six months.
Nirmal Purza, a 36-year-old who served in the British Army, completed his task on Tuesday morning at the peak of the mountain in Shishapang, China.
Earlier, the honor was in the name of Georgie Kuczka of Poland, who completed the challenge in 1987 after eight years.
On his way to the Everest base camp in 2012, he began his life as a mountaineer determined to climb Everest.
Queen Elizabeth had granted him an MBE in 2018
There are 14 mountains over 8,000 meters high.
Purza started his campaign last April and climbed Mt. Everest in may. The video he captured there captured the world’s attention.
He also rescued four other climbers during the Everest ascent.
He had climbed Everest, Lotus and Makalu Mountains in five days.
