Sometimes a step off the beaten path is the best step you’ll ever take. It can lead you to interests you never knew you had, experiences you never thought would be yours, a whole different life path.
Nimsdai Purja takes this philosophy above and beyond. The Nepali mountaineer is best known for his accomplishment of summiting the world’s 14 highest peaks in a record time of 6 months and 6 days smashing the previous record of 7 years 310 days. Purja named the expedition Project Possible in defiance of all his fellow explorers who said the feat was a complete impossibility.
Although the naysayers were abundant, Purja and his team tediously planned out this series of expeditions to optimize speed and safety. While carrying out this endeavor, there were a few instances where the team was forced to go off-script. Multiple times Purja and team were forced to rescale mountains they had just summited to aid fellow mountaineers who had either become stranded or oxygen deprived. A daunting task even when you don’t have a record shattering goal to keep pace for, these instances put the team’s courage and empathy on full display. The completion of this expedition is yet another example of determined individuals defying the odds and doing the impossible.
