A team of 10 Nepalese climbers creates record

Celebrations at the airport of the Pakistani capital Islambad for the arrival of Nepalese climbers who have first climbed the top of K2 during winter time. K2 is the world’s second-highest mountain. The 28,251-foot summit has never been reached in winter due to the difficult weather.  “It was the result of teamwork that made the impossible, possible” explained team leader Nirmal Purja.
