Hari Budha Magar will attempt to Climb Mount Everest

22nd August 2022

Hari Budha Magar - Everest Climb Project

The ultimate goal of this epic challenge is for Hari to become the world’s first double above-the-knee amputee to conquer Everest and inspire and change perceptions around disability.

Around 12-15% of the world’s population have some kind of disability. That’s nearly 1 billion people worldwide. His message is that whatever is thrown at you, you can live life to the full.

He wants to raise awareness of disability and show that having a disability does not have to be limiting. We can be successful and live a happy and meaningful life. We should no longer be seen as being poor, miserable and living off benefits.

But changing this perception will be a bigger battle than climbing Everest.

As a Corporal in the Brigade of Gurkhas he lost both of his legs in Afghanistan following an IED explosion in 2010. Not wanting disability to stop him or others conquering dreams he has been continually working to positively transform the way people with a disability are perceived, and how they perceive themselves. In accomplishing this monumental challenge he hopes to inspire other people facing similar circumstances to believe anything is possible with the right mindset.
