The Norwegian climber claims that she would be able to climb all 14 highest peaks of the world in less than three months,after climbing eight of them in the last 40 days.

Harila (37) disclosed her plans to set new world record in climbing on Tuesday in Kathmandu after returning from mountains.

She is attempting to break the previous record made in 2019 by Nirmal Purja ( a British veteran solider)  who took 189 days  to achieve this record of climbing all 14 highest peaks.

She is now preparing to climb Mt Manaslu in a few days. Then she plans to go for other five remaining peaks including K2 in Pakistan.

Her latest climb on Mt Annapurna was on June 5, besides Everest climb and scaling Mt Shishapangma.

She had made her first attempt in April 2022 to complete it by September but the Chinese authorities did not allow her to climb due to Covid-19 pandemic.
