DThat foot-disabled adventurer Rustam Nabijev has managed to climb the world’s eighth highest mountain in the Himalayas. This was confirmed by the company that organized their expedition and an employee of the Nepalese authority, which issues certificates for successful ascents, the German Press Agency.
Jai Ram Upreti, a government official, said, “I have never seen a person with such a severe disability climb a mountain like this.” “His performance is simply extraordinary.” It is difficult for a physically healthy person to climb a mountain. On October 2, Nabiyev stood on top of Mount Manaslu, 8,163 meters high.

According to his mountain guide Mingma-ji, Nabiev was a former soldier and had lost his legs in the collapse of a barracks in Siberia six years earlier. “Some people believed it, but I made it,” Nabiev wrote on Instagram. “I have turned a new page in the history of modern mountaineering,” said the Russian. And he said that he was the first person in the world to climb eight thousand with only his own hands. He dedicated the climb to the memory of his mother, whose photo he had taken with him during the expedition, along with photographs of his wife and daughter.
Mountain guide Mingma-ji confirmed that he only used his hands and needed help with only a few difficult parts. Neither the mountain guide nor the officials were able to confirm whether he was the first to do so.
