World-class mountaineer, Park Jung-hun

There is a world-class alpinist in Korea, who has conquered some of the toughest mountains to climb including Annapurna, Mt. Everest, K2, and more, and it's none other than Park Jung-hun.

After joining a mountaineering club in middle school, there was nothing that could suppress his passion for climbing. Still in his teens, he even won a prize at the National Rock Climbing Competition. Gradually, over the years, he felt like it was his destiny to conquer every part of the Himalayan range with his bare hands and feet.

After climbing some of the world's tallest peaks, he wanted to set a new record by becoming the world's first to climb the northern face of Mt. Cholatse. He was successful in his attempt, but on the descent, his companion, who was tied to Park by a rope at the time, fell into a crevasse, and this resulted in severe injuries for both of them. Although they managed to get out of the crevasse alive, they struggled in the intense cold for days and the prolonged exposure to the cold weather led to severe frostbite and subsequent digital amputation for Park.

Due to his disability, he was forced to give up mountain climbing and with that, he lost his reason to live. But during a reluctant journey across the Silk Road, he came to a sudden realization that made him seek new ways to embrace once again what he loves the most, the Himalayas.

Park Jung-hun is planning to traverse the Himalayan range by cycling, kayaking, skiing and paragliding this July. Learn more about his inspirational story on The INNERview.
