Paul Niel documented his latest adventure, conquering the ‘the Alps of Tibet’ in an article on the South China Morning Post. The Hong Kong based entrepreneur and future thinker recently achieved his childhood dream of climbing a virgin peak. Paul Niel, was among the team of six mountaineers who became the first to conquer 5,632-metre Dechok Phedrong peak in the Gangga mountain range.

In his article, Paul Niel took us through their exciting journey to the top. He went into great, powerful descriptive detail of the challenges that their team had to face like the hip-deep snow, the physical pain of adapting to the altitude, the frustration of meeting a dead end. He then narrated how they were able to bounce back and succeed despite almost dire situations.

His article’s fitting ending “One peak has been climbed, but hundreds more remain untouched and to be explored.” reflects Paul’s love for adventure and drive to stay positive despite adverse conditions.
