On June 21, Sherpa successfully scaled Gasherbrum II, becoming the only climber in the world to make double ascent of all 14 peaks above 8,000m.

Pasang Sherpa, Chairman at Pioneer Adventures, said that a chariot procession has been organised to offer hero's welcome to the legendary climber.

"Sanu is the only climber in the world to complete all peaks twice," NMA President Nima Nuru Sherpa said.

According to him, his record seems to be 'unbeatable'.
