Xia Boyu, 70, on Monday scaled the world's highest peak Qomolangma as the first double amputee climber from the Nepali side, government officials confirmed. 尼泊尔政府官员证实，70岁的夏伯渝成为第一个双腿截肢从尼泊尔成功登顶珠穆朗玛峰的攀登者。 Till date, the only double amputee to summit1 Qomolangma is Mark Inglis from New Zealand, who had scaled the peak from China's Tibet side in 2006. "The Chinese double amputee scaled the summit at 8:40 a.m. local time today. He is the first double amputee to climb the peak from south face," Gyanendra Shrestha, an official at the Department of Tourism under the Ministry2 of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation3, told Xinhua via telephone from the base camp. Xia's successful summit comes a day after eight rope-fixing team members reached the summit, making the climbing route open for all other climbers for 2018 spring season. The double amputee had received the climbing permit from the Nepali government after the country's supreme4 court, on March, allowed double amputee and visually impaired5 persons from climbing any mountains above 6,500 meters.
