Swimming Mt. Everest

Author: Hugh Bollinger/Thursday, October 29, 2015/Categories: natural history, environment, adventure , climate change

There are many forms of extreme sport but swimming next to Mount Everest has to be one for the books.

Lewis Pugh, called the Sir Edmund Hillary of swimming, takes the plunge into vulnerable ecosystems drawing attention to them. Pugh swam in glacial Lake Pumori, created by climate change, to draw attention to the melting of Himalayan glaciers and the potential impact that reduced water supplies will have far below the high peaks.
