Nims Purja: Make your dreams a reality

Monday, 14 December

Nirmal ‘Nims’ Purja MBE became the fastest person to climb all of the 14 worlds highest 8000 meter mountains in 2019. The previous record for this achievement was just under 8 years. Nims achieved this in just 6 months and 6 days. Aptly named Project Possible, Nims delivered on his promise and what many claimed to be ‘impossible’.

Previously, Nims served in The Gurkhas for 6 years before passing Special Forces selection and joining the SBS (Special Boat Service) where he served for a further 10 years.

Nim’s book ‘Beyond Possible: One Soldier, Fourteen Peaks — My Life In The Death Zone’ is out now.
