Description

By Reuters

Description:
LONDON, ENGLAND, UK (NOVEMBER 20, 2019) (REUTERS) (SOUNDBITE) (English) MOUNTAIN CLIMBER, NIRMAL "NIMS" PURJA, SAYING: "I made a request to the command that, 'can I go and climb the top five highest mountains in 80 days?' Because for 80 days, you could probably get leave. At first, the decision was a yes, but then it became a no because the risks were super high. You know, on K2, one in four (people) dies. Kanchenjunga, exactly the same. So, it seems to be unfair, in defence, for me to go out and do this in extremely high-risk. But that was it. When they said 'no', I gave my resignation. And since I'm leaving (the armed forces) anyway and have the whole of the time to myself and I could make my own decisions, why just climb only the top five? I could climb all 14 of the highest mountains with an over 8,000 metre peak and that's the plan.
