KATHMANDU, DECEMBER 1

Netflix’s documentary ’14 peaks: Nothing is Impossible’ which was released on November 29 has received global acknowledgement as Nepali mountaineer Nirmal Purja aka Nimsdai exhibits an outlook that screams ‘nothing is impossible’ with his mission to summit all 14 peaks above 8000 metres in just seven months.

Two days after it’s release, people across the globe have showered relentless praises on the documentary. The imdb score runs as high as 8.6 and the critics at rotten tomatoes have rated it at 83%, at the moment.

It has also been ranked fifth on the list of Top 10 documentaries on Netflix.

The movie has also received other accreditations such as The Guardian Film Choice, The Sunday Times’ Pick of the week.

The film directed by Torquil Jones has a way to explore “Nepal’s deep connection to high-altitude mountaineering” as seen from the eyes of Nimsdai, as a part of Project Possible.

The movie contains 100 hours of footage captured by Nimsdai and his team during their journey to the highest peaks, attempted between April to October 2019.

He and his team of skilled Sherpas scaled Mt Everest, K2, Kanchanjunga, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Dhaulagiri I, Manaslu, Nanga Parbat, Annapurna I, Gasherbrum I, Broad Peak, Gasherbrum II, and Shishapangma braving tough weather, showcasing strong will and returned victorious, thus breaking the previous record held by Kim Chang-ho of South Korea, who took nearly eight years to summit all 8000ers.

“Know that nothing is impossible, let this movie be your inspiration. When I started no one knew who this guy was, no one believed I was serious, and no one thought I would do it. Now, here we are, 14 peaks going out to across 191 countries amongst its 180 million subscribers. And it feels amazing!,” in words of Nimsdai. Add link

“We all have personal mountains to climb in life – may be your mountain isn’t an 8000er – but whatever it is, know that you can do it.”
