Speaking about Sanu Sherpa’s feat, Seven Summit Treks Managing Director Tashi Lakpa Sherpa said that he had started his climb from Makalu and scaled the 8,167 m Dhaulagiri mountain to complete all 14 peaks above 8,000 m.
“Lakpa Temba Sherpa and Phurtenzi Sherpa, being part of the rope-fixing team from Seven Summit Treks opened the climbing route,” said Chhang Dawa Sherpa Expedition Director.
Bulgarian climber Skatov Atanas Georgiev accompanied Sanu Sherpa when he completed his 13th above-8,000 m mountains Gasherbrum I and II in August 2019.
