HARI BUDHA MAGAR

Haru Budha Magar will be the first bi-lateral, above knee amputee to attempt to climb Mt Everest

HARI GREW UP WITHIN SIGHT OF MT. EVEREST.

He has always wanted to climb it.  As a child, he didn’t have the money.  As a member of the elite British Gurkha Rifles, he never had the time.  With the loss of his legs Hari feels the time is right.

ThruDark have worked closely with Hari in his “Endeavour Through Adversity” by designing and manufacturing a bespoke summit suit.

 


NEPAL AMPUTEE BAN

 

NEPAL BANS AMPUTEES FROM CLIMBING MT. EVEREST

In January 2018, the Government of Nepal enacted a ban on people with amputations climbing the mountain.  It has been in response to the increasing number of injuries and fatalities suffered each year on Mt. Everest.  That new rule has forced the expedition to extend our climbing schedule one year to April 2019.  During that time we expect to earn a special dispensation for Hari to make the climb.

The Government has considered a requirement that people attempting to climb Mt. Everest first succeed climbing other peaks that exceed 6,000 meters (19,700 feet).  Hari has already accomplished that in preparation for his attempt.
