Pakistan Embassy in Brussels honours mountaineer Paul Hegge
The Embassy of Pakistan in Brussels held a webinar on the National Day of Belgium to honour Paul Hegge, the first Belgian mountaineer to ever ascend K2.
The 53-year-old Hegge made headlines when on July 21, 2018 he along with a group of other climbers scaled the 8611km high K2 peak, which is also known as Mount Godwin-Austen.
According to Hegge those aspiring to climb K2 need to train harder and take great care of their preparations. He said en route to ascending K2 one had to spend more or less two months in the camping on snow.
