WATCH: Local man climbs seven tallest peaks on all seven continents, including Everest


Two weeks ago, Ravil Chamgoulov was quite literally on top of the world

He was on top of Mt. Everest, having completed his goal of climbing the highest peaks on all seven continents, to raise money for B.C. Children’s Hospital.

Chamgoulov is an engineer by trade, but also an experienced mountain climber. He has made over 200 ascents of peaks more than 4,000 meters.

Now that he has completed his goal of climbing Everest, he wants to help out the hospital.

Chamgoulov hopes to raise $10,000 for B.C. Children’s Hospital, and has already raised $700.

To make a donation, visit his page on the B.C. Children’s Hospital website, or his personal blog where you can read about his incredible hiking adventure on Mt. Everest.
