the WORLD'S first double above-knee AMPUTEE to summit MOUNT EVEREST
In 2010, Hari Budha Magar lost both his legs above the knee, to an IED in Afghanistan.
Determined to change perceptions of what is possible for people with a disability, he reached the summit of Mount Everest around 3pm (Nepal time) on 19th May 2023.
