Mingma became the only man on earth to summit K2 five times. The fastest Tsering became the fastest man on earth to summit K2 in the record of 12 hours and 20 minutes.
Mingma David Sherpa for summiting the savage mountain K2 for the 5th time.
He’s the only human in the world to do so.
His last ascent took just 14 hrs and 22 min from base camp to the top.
Mingma David Sherpa is a true K2 boy now.
K2 is being officially commercialized just like Mt. Everest by the Nepalese Sherpas. The savage mountain is no more a challenge to climb.
First time in climbing history, we have seen a traffic jam on the bottleneck of K2. The whole courtesy goes to Sherpas, the mountain beasts.
They are true professionals, they love mountains their achievements show their passion, commitment, and loyalty to the profession.
