Next April, Hernán will set off on a new adventure which will take him to Nepal. His goal, as a mountaineer and a Chilean, is to perform a unique feat.
As from March 11th, you will be able to follow the expedition in detail.
Hernán discovered his passion for mountaineering during a trip he made to Nepal. Without even having dreamt of it, he became one of the seven Chileans to have successfully completed the 7 summits , which is the name given to the highest peaks of each continent and of both poles.
It was during this process that he reached the Summit of the Aconcagua in South America, the Kilimanjaro in Africa, Denali in North America, Elbrus in Eastern Europe, Everest in Asia and the Carstensz in Oceania. These last three summits were reached by this entrepreneur in the year 2017, and in January 2018 he managed to reach the Summit of the Vinson Massif in Antartica. With this last summit, Hernan accomplished his goal of reaching the 7 summits, becoming the seventh Chilean to meet this great challenge. But that´s not all, as in May 2018 he achieved an important record by becoming the first South American to climb Mount Everest and Lhotse during the same expedition.
Then in September of that same year, from the top of the sixth highest mountain in the world – the Cho Oyu – he was crowned with a new Latin American record. Upon accomplishing this feat, he positioned himself as the first climber in the region to climb three mountains of more than 8000 meters in less than six months.
