In the summer of 2013 I started on a big journey. I left my hometown and started cycling with my climbing gear and everything I owned towards Nepal. After 3600km I arrived at the base of Mt. Elbrus (Russia) to climb it. After reaching the summit I continued my journey to Nepal. A total of 13.300km and 5 months later I arrived at the base of Mount Everest.

That year I tried to climb Mount Everest without supplementary oxygen but the serrac fall where 16 Sherpa's lost their lives made it impossible to climb further.

I spent the next year working and training to climb Mt Everest once again in the spring season of 2015 (without Sherpa or oxygen). But, in April 2015 a massive earthquake hit Nepal and I was caught in an avalanche at EBC.

Now I'm already preparing for another expedition in the spring of 2016. This is all part of a bigger plan where I want to climb the 7 summits and reach them on my own forces. Climb and reach the seven summits without using an engine.

During this project I'm trying to raise money and awareness for street  children and more specific in Kathmandu (INGO shangrilahome). I've lived myself for 3 years on the streets at the age of 17 and got opportunities to go to university and become a Physiotherapist. I want to give the same opportunities in life to those children...
