Today we have yet another entry into Kilian Jornet’s Summits of My Life series. This video takes us back to 2015, when a deadly earthquake struck Nepal just two days before Kilian and some friends were set to travel there and make an attempt on Everest. Even though that massive natural disaster devastated the country, the team decided to go anyway with the hopes of being able to lend a hand during the recovery process. The footage that you’ll see here will serve as a stark reminder of that challenges that Nepal faced in the wake of the earthquake, which even now—nearly five years later—it still struggles to fully recover from.
