There are thousands of peaks in the entire world, from which only 14 of them are higher than 8000ft. Purja wants to scale all of them in only seven months. This sound plan is next to impossible for humankind. When his family, neighbors, and colleagues had listened to his ‘plan’, they were sure that he had gone mad.
The conquest is unsettling, impossible for any human being, even for a person who is born in the lap of the Himalayas. However, Nimsdai named this project “Project Possible” and pushed himself to break the previous record of seven years and set a new one of seven months.
With a team of extremely skilled sherpas, he starts his journey by leaving his wife, brother, and mother at home. He ascended to the summit of Mount Everest, K2, and other major peaks above 8000 ft. He achieved these feats in extreme weather conditions, and life and death situations.
Nimsdai Purja claimed, “When you are in the mountains, if you give up, you die. If I can stay alive, I can do this in seven months.”
He added, “The biggest strength I have is, I have no fear.”
