A 60-year-old retiree has used climbing gear to reach the summit of Kala Patthar, one of the Nepalese Himalayas.
The Northamptonshire Evening Telegraph reports that Ramesh Nathwani is a keen mountain climber and has embarked on a 19-day trek to raise money for Cancer Research.
He stated that he visited the region last year but only made it halfway up with his climbing gear and was determined to go one better this time.
Undertaking such a physically-demanding challenge required preparation, with Mr Nathwani telling the news provider that he goes to the gym three times a week and did some mountain climbing in India beforehand.
Speaking of the excursion, the 60-year-old said: "The air was thin in some areas and it was windy in some areas as well - it was a difficult trek."
Rugby-player-turned-adventurer Richard Parks recently scaled Denali as part of his goal of becoming the first man to climb the highest summits on each of the five continents.
