A 70-year-old double amputee from China, Xia Boyu, has arrived in Nepal with a mission to climb the Mount Everest this spring season.

Xia has already made four attempts to conquer the top of the world, but in vain.

Mingma Gyaljje Sherpa, Managing Director at the Imagine Trek and Expedition, informs Onlinekhabar that Xia had reached the Everest Base Camp in 2015, but was forced to return due to the earthquake-triggered avalanche.

Likewise, he returned from a point at the height of around 8,000 metres the next year.

Sherpa is accompanying Boyu to the peak.

Earlier, the Nepal government had banned amputees from climbing the Everest; but the Supreme Court had later issued an interim order to stay its implementation.
