In the process, he set a new world record by becoming the first mountaineer to climb all 14 peaks on the first attempt. Mingma Sherpa and his brother, Chhang Dawa Sherpa, hold the world record of the world's first two brothers to successfully summit the fourteen eight thousanders
Journey to Eight thousanders
The Sherpa brothers used supplementary oxygen only on the four highest mountains out of all 8000ers. They climbed all eight thousanders with no sponsor. Until Mingma climbed nine 8000ers as a Sherpa guide and then went to Japan for work. In 2009 Mingma returned to Nepal and climbed the remaining 5 other 8000ers.
