Beyond Possible (Paperback)Nimsdai Purja (author)
Chilled by the glacial winds and lung-burning temperatures, Beyond Possible charts the incredible journey of an elite soldier who conquered 14 of the world’s toughest peaks in six months.
What happens when ambition meets limitless imagination?
Enter Project Possible: a seemingly unreachable goal to climb all fourteen "death zone" mountains in record time. The previous record was seven years, ten months and six days.
I did it in six months.
This is the inside story of my incredible adventure. As a kid in Nepal, barefoot in the mountains, I developed the resilience I needed to later join the Gurkhas, one of the most fearless forces in the British Army. Then in the Special Boat Service I served in some of the world's most dangerous warzones.
But my next challenge was even more of a test.
In Beyond Possible I'll reveal how I conquered the world's most dangerous peaks, breaking several world records in the process. With my elite training, I was able to adapt quickly to the lethal conditions, rarely phased by the lung-burning temperatures or brutal winds. Fear became irrelevant because I had belief.
In the death zone, I came alive. But even after facing countless challenges, right at the peak of my achievements, my world fell apart when my mother was hospitalized.
But I survived and ultimately conquered the most deadly and hostile mountains on the planet. Beyond Possible is my story.
