“The hardship made me challenge the seemingly impossible. I overcame the handicap a mountain gave me by climbing mountains.”
कठिनाई ने मुझे असंभव प्रतीत होने वाली चुनौती दी। मैं एक पहाड़ पर चढ़ने से मुझे दी गई बाधा को काबू करता हूं। ”
“अडचणीमुळे मला अशक्य वाटते. डोंगरावर चढून मला माउंटनने दिलेल्या अपघातावर मी विजय मिळविला. ”
Kim Hong-bin, 54
Kim reached the top of the world’s 11th highest mountain, Gasherbrum I.
Mt Annapurna-I is considered as one of the deadliest peak in the climbing world.
Kim Hong-bin who scaled Mt Everest in 2007 completed the Seven Summits Challenge by climbing Mt Vinson in Antarctica in 2009.
And he continued to climb eight-thousanders: Dhaulagiri (in 2009), Cho Oyu (in 2011), K2 (in 2012), Kangchenjunga (in 2013), Manaslu (in 2014), Lhotse and Nanga Parbat (both in 2017), Annapurna (in 2018) – and now Gasherbrum I.
Kim Hong-bin scaled Mt Lhotse and Nanga Parbat last year
2009, he completed his collection of the “Seven Summits”
The 7 summits
Kilimanjaro | Elbrus | Carstensz | Everest | Denali | Aconcagua | Vinson
In 1991, Kim Hong-bin had suffered severe frostbite on the 6190-meter-high Denali in Alaska, the highest mountain of North America. All ten fingers had to be amputated.
“If the accident at Denali hadn’t happened, I would have remained an ordinary climber,” Hong-bin once said. “The hardship made me challenge the seemingly impossible. I overcame the handicap a mountain gave me by climbing mountains.”
