There is a reason why the altitude above 8000 m is called the ‘Death Zone.’ At that cruising altitude, our bodies are literally dying. There are 14 peaks on the planet that climb above that height. Hence, there are few souls that can claim to have scaled all fourteen 8000 m peaks. However, in 2019, an ex British soldier named Nirmal Purja set to break all the records. He scaled all the 14 mountains in a staggering period of 6 months; the previous record being at 2 years.
This is a story of unbreakable will, great leadership, immense faith and resourcefulness. Be it Death Zone or any other mountain, these traits make you tackle any challenge in life. As the legendary Sir Edmund Hilary once said, “It is not the mountains we conquer, but ourselves.”
