Hari Budha Magar, the man attempting to become the world’s first double above-the-knee amputee to summit Everest, is biding his time for a suitable weather window to begin climbing the mountain.
Along with his team, including mountain guide Krish Thapa, Hari is eager to start the climb which he was hoping to begin early this week.
Yesterday, Hari said: “I’m feeling really excited, we have waited here for two weeks. I’m slightly nervous as well, obviously, but I think that’s a normal thing for a human being!
“There are so many dangers. The weather can suddenly change, the ice poles can collapse, any of the team members including myself can be hurt. I’ll be very slow, and avalanches can come any time.
“But whatever happens, we are going up. I’m hoping we can summit and create history.”
