South Korean Oh Eun-sun became the first woman to conquer the world’s top 14 peaks after reaching the top of Annapurna in Nepal on Tuesday.
There are 14 independent peaks on earth over 8,000m above sea level (referred to as the Eight-Thousanders). Italian Reinhold Messner was the first to reach all the peaks in 1986. A total of 20 men and woman have completed the feat.
There are still some questions over Oh’s record though, as there’s dispute on whether the 44-year-old Korean has reached one of the tops in 2009.
