Kathmandu, July 27

Tenjen Sherpa (Lama) along with his client Kristin Harila created history in Pakistan on Thursday.

With their latest summit, the two have climbed all 14 eight-thousanders in 92 days obliterating the previous record held by Nirmal Purja Magar (Nimsdai.)

Sherpa and Harila started their journey in Tibet by climbing Shishapangma on April 26 and Cho Oyu on May 3.

They came to Nepal and climbed Makalu, Kangchenjunga, Everest, Lhotse, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and Manaslu between May 13 and June 10.

The two then set their sights on the Karakorum where the two climbed Nanga Parbat, Gasherbrum II, Gasherbrum I, Broad Peak and K2 between June 26 and July 27.

In 2022 Harila had come close to beating Purja’s record time for climbing all 14 eight-thousanders in a season. But, when China did not give her permits to climb the two mountains in Tibet, she had to give up last year.
