Norwegian climber Kristin Harila is on a mission to conquer the world’s 14 highest mountains in a record-breaking three months. The 37-year-old has already scaled eight of the peaks in an impressive 40 days, and is now setting her sights on the remaining six, including Mount Manaslu in Nepal and the five peaks in Pakistan, including K2, the second-highest mountain in the world. Harila’s journey began in April when she scaled Mount Shishapangma, followed by other peaks in China and Nepal, including the iconic Mount Everest. Her latest conquest was Mount Annapurna on June 5, which she climbed late in the spring season when most teams had already left the mountains.

Harila’s determination to beat the current record set by Nirmal Purja, a Nepal-born British citizen who completed the feat in 189 days in 2019, is unwavering. She has revised her target from completing the climb by September to achieving her goal in half the time, citing the need to climb Manaslu and the five peaks in Pakistan as crucial to her success. “I believe we can do it, if we do Manaslu now and the five in Pakistan, we can do in three months,” she said.

Harila’s incredible feat has sparked attention worldwide, with many wondering how she is able to scale the world’s highest mountains so quickly. Her guide, Tenjen Sherpa, attributes her success to her determination and experience. “She is very focused and driven,” he said. “She has a lot of experience and knows what she is doing.” Harila’s exceptional climbing skills and unwavering determination have allowed her to push through challenging conditions and overcome obstacles.

But Harila’s expedition is not just about breaking records; it’s also about pushing her own limits and testing her physical and mental endurance. “I am so happy that we have made eight and we are all safe and everyone is good,” she said, reflecting on her progress so far. For Harila, the expedition is also about proving that women can achieve greatness in mountaineering. “I will do everything I can to make this possible,” she said.

As Harila prepares to tackle the remaining six peaks, she is determined to make history and showcase her climbing abilities. With her exceptional skills and unwavering determination, it seems that nothing can stop Harila from achieving her goal and making her mark on the mountaineering world.
