After contacting this sport, you will feel hardships and difficulties. Bing collapse and blizzard are a great test of us.

When the peak was less than 100 meters away, the storm blocked him. In order to obtain more experience in wearing righteous limbs, Xia Boyu climbed Muzetag Peak at 7546 meters above sea level, Yusu Peak of 6178 meters, Simuami Mountain and Balang Mountain at 6,250 meters above sea level.

"Xia Boyu said. Finally, on May 14, 2018, Xia Boyu hit Mount Everest for the fifth time and completed the feat.
"The experience of losing my legs is a turning point in my life. At first I hated Mount Everest. It took it to take my feet and experienced the ups and downs of my life. I fell in love with Everest. The dream of life and the courage to overcome difficulties makes my life more fulfilling.
"Xia Boyu said.
Today, the old man who has been old is passing his dreams and persistence to more young people.
With the help of the government, he walked into colleges and universities to share his experience with college students. In his spare time, he interacted with elementary school students to tell his stories … "The power of sports makes me not afraid of difficulties and always move forward.
"Xia Boyu said," I don’t recognize ‘people’ s victory ’, not that I conquered Mount Everest, but that Evefeng accepted me.
People are too small in front of nature, and nature will never be conquered, but human destiny can (conquer). "".
