Zhang Hong, a 46-year-old visually impaired Chinese climber, became the first blind person from Asia to scale Mt. Everest (Qomolangma), the world's tallest peak, on Monday.
 

Zhang reached the top of the highest mountain at 9 a.m. local time from the Nepali side along with three high-altitude guides, said the Asian Trekking of Nepal that is organizing his expedition.
 

Jaya Bahadur Tamang, an official from the Asian Trekking, said over the phone from the base camp of Mt. Qomolangma that Zhang and his team started to move up to the top of the peak on Sunday night from the South Col (7,900m) and summited it on Monday morning.
 

There were six Chinese and six Sherpa guides in Zhang's team, but not all reached the top on Monday, according to the Asian Trekking. "As far as I know, Zhang is the only person of the Chinese expedition team to reach the top," said Bhuwan Limbu, another official from the trekking company.
 

According to expedition companies, there had been strong winds on Mt. Qomolangma from Sunday evening and many had descended from the South Col to the base camp.
 

In January 2017, the Nepali government decided to ban double amputees, persons without arms and legs and blind persons from attempting the world's highest peak. But, in March the same year, Nepal's Supreme Court ordered not to implement the government's restriction on people with disabilities.

盲人张洪登上珠穆朗玛峰,堪称登珠峰界的一大奇迹

世界上最高的山峰:珠穆朗玛峰,珠峰高度8848.86米。
 

对于喜欢登山的爱好者来说,能够登上珠峰,绝对是这辈子心中最高的圣地。
 

46岁的中国盲人张洪,于2021年5月24日珠峰登顶成功,这绝对是一大奇迹。
 

本次珠峰登顶成功,张洪为亚洲珠峰成功登顶第一人,世界盲人成功登顶第三人。在此之前,美国盲人埃里克•韦恩迈耶于2001年5月登顶,奥地利盲人安迪•霍尔策于2017年5月登顶成功。
 

据攀登珠峰的人表示:珠峰8000米+以上空气含氧量极其稀薄,山路狭窄,高海拔和恶劣的气候环境,对人的身心都是巨大的挑战。
 

作为一名盲人张洪能够克服自己的重重困难,在3名夏尔巴人的协作下登顶珠峰,确实极其不容易。
