Hari’s Historic Everest Climb Just the Start



Hari Budha Magar, the world's first double above knee amputee to summit Everest, is to attempt to climb the highest peak on every continent.


A year on from his historic climb to the top of Everest (8,849m), Hari has announced that he will take his message of ‘no legs, no limits’ around the world, inspiring people everywhere that a disability and weakness shouldn't limit your ability to achieve their dreams.


"Limitations are put on those with a disability all the time,” said Hari, whose ambitious ‘tour’ to all seven continents will start in June when he tackles North America's highest peak Denali (6,190m).


“Yet most of the time a disability is not life limiting, it shouldn't stop us from chasing our dreams. It's all about adaptation.


"Through my challenges, I wants to raise awareness of disability and positively change the way people with disabilities are perceived and how they perceive themselves.


"Having done this in Nepal and in the UK where I live - I now want to take this lifechanging message around the world. The best way to do that is to take my story to them. To climb the seven highest summits on the seven continents."


He has already climbed three of the peaks (Mt. Blanc (4,810m) in August 2019, Mt. Kilimanjaro (5,895m) in January 2020 and Mt. Everest (8,849m) in May 2023.


After Denali, Hari plans to climb Puncak Jaya (4,884m) in Oceania, Aconcagua (6,961m) in South America and then finish with Mt. Vinson (4,892m) in Antarctica. 


He hopes to complete all seven peaks by early 2026.


"As a champion of removing limits, demonstrating resilience and innovation and showing the effects of a positive mindset, Hari is truly unique and inspiring individual whom we are proud to support and in awe as his sets on this new challenge," said Major General Lamont Kirkland (retd), CEO of Team Forces, one of Hari's principal partners.


Originally from Nepal, Hari served for 15 years in the British Army's Gurkha regiment, before losing both of his legs from an improvised explosive device (IED) bomb in Afghanistan in 2010.
