Anyone else in his place would have given up, but not him. Just a month after narrowly surviving being hit by a car, high-altitude mountaineer and research-zoologist Boyan Petrov starts his recovery and long preparation to continue his dream – climbing all the fourteen 8,000-meter peaks.
Without supplementary oxygen and 3 times cancer survivor, he has climbed all 10 of the 14 eight-thousanders. Now it’s time for the world’s giant – Everest.
For the purpose, Boyan starts his journey by “warm-up” with the lowest peak among them – the so-called “dwarf” Shishapangma.
Number 11 on his bucket list. An unexpected twist of fate leads to Boyan’s disappearance just a few meters below the peak which activates an unprecedented interstate rescue mission and helicopter searches between the countries of Nepal, China, and Bulgaria.
This is an inspiring story that documents indomitable human spirit and strive to live. This is a story that adds value and celebrates life. A story that gives more of his dedication, his inspiration, his legacy.
