New world record of climbing all 14 8000ers in 92 days

Kathmandu: Nepali climber Tenjen Sherpa (Lama) along with his client Kristin Harila created a new world record in climbing all 14 8000ers in the fastest time by climbing the K2 peak in Pakistan on Thursday.

Both Tenjen Sherpa and Kristin Harila are now the new world record holders of climbing all 14 eight thousanders in 92 days there by breaking the earlier record held by the Nepali climber Nirmal Purja Magar.

Climber Kristin Harila had already attempted this feat in 2022 when Chinese ban to climb two peaks in Tibet forced her to give up her expedition last year.

The expedition team of international climbers and Sherpas reached the top of the world’s second highest peak in Karakoram on Thursday morning at around 10:45 am which was confirmed by officials of Seven Summit Treks. The height of K2 is 8611m.
