South Korean Climbs Nanga Parbat, Completes 8,000ers

On the summit of Nanga Parbat 2018

South Korean expedition leader Kim Migon has reached the summit of Nanga Parbat and has completed the 8,000-metre peak list.

He reached the summit of the ninth highest mountain on July 9 with Sanu Sherpa from Nepal and Lu Chung Han from Taiwan.

It’s the first 8,000-metre summit reached this summer after a number of strong climbers called it quits on Nanga Parbat earlier this season.

This year in the Pakistan Karakoram has been a deadly one, with three climbers having lost their lives already, including Serge Dessureault from Quebec.
