National mountaineer T. Ravichandran has done it again!

This time, the 57-year-old, who's also known as "Ravi Everest", has summitted the world's second highest mountain, K2 in Pakistan.

According to Bernama, Ravichandran conquered the 8,611m peak at 10.50am local time last Friday, together with five other world-class solo climbers and five sherpas.

With the feat, the climber, who's also classified as a person with disabilities (OKU), has become the first Malaysian to raise the national flag at K2.

Ravichandran attributed his success to Malaysia in conjunction with the upcoming National Day celebraion on Aug 31.

"Love for the country, living in peace and harmony, these are the key to unity instilled in me that proved to be a source of strength to face difficulties during the climb.

"Thanks also to my wife... you are the pillar of strength in my success," the national news agency quoted him saying via WhatsApp.

It is worth noting that Ravichandran summitted the world's tallest peak, Mount Everest, for the third time, last May 12.

Congratulations Ravichandran on making it to K2's peak. May you be blessed with good health so you can create and break more records in the future.
