Summit success reported from Nanga Parbat
This summer’s first summit success on an eight-thousander in Pakistan has been reported. The Pakistani expedition operator “Summit Karakoram” informed that South Korean Kim Mi-gon, Taiwanese Lu Chung-han and Sanu Sherpa from Nepal had reached the 8125-meter-high summit of Nanga Parbat on Monday. The 45-year-old Kim thus completed his collection of the 14 eight-thousanders, it said.
Just another climb
At the beginning of his expedition, the Korean had already thanked all those who had supported him on his way since 1998. “I don’t know how many people helped me to go to the Himalayas in 20 years,” Kim wrote on Facebook in early June. “People say Nanga Parbat will mean a lot to me. But for me it’s just another climb I like.”
