Alpinist returns from the first ever ascent of Himalayan Lunag Ri peak

In one of the most impressive first ascents of the modern alpine era, David Lama succeeded in becoming the first to conquer Lunag Ri (6907 m/22,660 ft.), one of the highest unclimbed peaks in Nepal.

It was a challenging climb on a mountain never previously summited – a unique achievement in an era where few such challenges are left.
