Xia Boyu, a 69-year-old Chinese mountaineer, has becomes the first disabled climber to scale Mount Qomolangma in China, the highest mountain in the world known as Mount Everest in the West.
In 1975, Xia gave his sleeping bag to a companion, which caused his legs to become frostbitten and amputated.
After that, Xia has suffered from cancer, avalanches, major surgery and other tribulations, but he has never given up his dream of scaling Qomolangma with an optimistic and brave heart.
For 43 years, Xia has tried five times. He finally succeeded on date, becoming the first Chinese handicapped mountaineer to scale the 8,848-meter-high peak.
