Bulgarian mountaineer Atanas Skatov has successfully climbed Mount Geshebrar I, the organiser of the expedition reported on July 12.
This is Skatov's second eight-thousander for this year, after in May he summited Kanchengjonga (8586m).
Gescherbrum I, also called the Hidden Peak, is 8080 m high above the sea level. It is the 11th highest peak in the world. It is located between Pakistan and China, and is the eighth eight-thousnader the Bulgarian mountaineer has climbed.
With this achievement, Skatov is getting closer to the so called Himalayan crown - a distinction that is given to climbers who have reached the 14 highest summits of the planet, with a height of over 8,000 m.
So far, no other Bulgarian has had such an achievement. Skatov also became the first vegan to summit Everest.
