I will be setting a world record as part of the youngest expedition to summit the Parang Peak at 19,000ft in July. Ladakh - “The Land of High Passes” in the Himalayas is an incredibly challenging high-altitude trek.
I was the youngest high-diver at the 2010 Commonwealth Games and a 50km ultramarathon runner. Now I will be going higher and venturing further than ever before, summiting the 19,000ft Parang Peak before commencing studies at Princeton University.
I need to raise $10,000 NZD ($8,500 USD) in order to partake in this challenge. With your help, I can break a world record! Every cent counts, so any donation is greatly appreciated!
The donations will be put towards flights, equipment, food and guides.
- Be the youngest team to cross the +18,300ft Parangla Pass
- Be the youngest team to summit the peak of Parang.
- Contibute to the first glaciological study on the Parang Glacier since the 1850s, producing an independent scientific report on the impact of climate change on the cryo-hydrosphere of Ladakh through glaciological data collection and analysis.
- Retrace the steps of A.H. Francke, a renowned 19th century German Tibetologist and explorer, following his route for 100km from Kibber to Karzok along remote, hostile river valleys seldom visited by anyone other than Ladakhi nomads.
- Partially circumnavigate the vast glacial lake Tso Morari.
- Be a part of a documentary and photographic exhibition, post-expedition.
Thank you for helping me!
