in 2024 and 2025 I am climbing the remaining 4 of the 7 summits to further change perceptions on disability and inspire change

by Hari Budha Magar in Canterbury, Kent, United Kingdom

In May 2023, after becoming the world’s first double above-knee amputee to summit Mount Everest, I decided to complete the 4 remaining peaks 7 Summits (highest peaks on each continent) as I am conscious that in order to changes perceptions on disability, inspire and challenge people to remove limits imposed on people with disabilities, demonstrating resilience and show the effects of a positive mindset, int he current world it requires a sustained demonstration and campaign to educate.

Over the next two years, I will attempt the remainder of the 7 Summits (highest summit on each continent) and become the first double above-knee amputee to do so.

To date I have completed the following summits:

  • Mt. Blanc (4,810m) – August 2019*
  • Mt. Kilimanjaro (5,895m) – January 2020
  • Mt. Everest (8,849m) – May 2023

 *using Mt Blanc for European peak, as Mt. Elbrus in Russia is not feasibly accessible for foreseeable future.

2024/2025, the plan is to summit:

  • Denali, North America (6,190m)
  • Aconcagua, South America (6,961m)

2025 - January 2026, the plan is to summit:

  • Puncak Jaya, Oceania (4,884m)
  • Mt. Vinson, Antarctica (4,892m)

Originally from Nepal, I served across five continents with the Royal Gurkha Rifles in the British Army, and in 2010, lost my legs in Afghanistan after stepping on an improvised explosive device. After struggling to come to terms with losing my legs, I made it my mission to change the perception of persons with disabilities; and inspire people around the world to climb their own mountains and conquer their dreams.

And, on the 19th May 2023, I realised this vision and became the first double above-knee amputee to stand victoriously atop the world’s highest peak at 8,849m  (29,029ft). The final summit via the Balcony, South Summit and the famous Hillary Step, took the team and I over 25 hours (it usually takes 12-16 hours for an average able bodied climber) in gruelling weather conditions.

Your support will help me raise awareness of disability and positively change the way persons with disabilities are perceived and how they perceive themselves.
