It was not only the youngest, Jordan Romero, on the top and Himalayan Tiger, Apa’s 20th summit, there is yet another climber to remember who scaled the top of the world. The world traveler on bicycle, Puskar Shah, hoisted the flags of 192 countries he visited on May 17, 2010.
It was not only the flags he carried to the top of the world but also the front wheel of his bicycle. He also sang a popular Nepali song â€œResham Fiririâ€ and remembered his mother during his 45 minutes stay at the peak of the 8,848m mountain.
Puskar said, â€œWhen I embarked on the world tour in 1998, I had a goal of hoisting the flags of all the nations for peace.â€
The 42-year-old, Shah said he has accomplished his mission and he is very happy that his world tour for peace has been a success.
