MALACCA: National solo climber Mohd Noor Mat Amin is hungry for more accolades.
The 51-year-old former Bernama photographer has made it into the Asian Book of Records (Abor) for solo climbing the Himalayan Range in 2017 and going up and down the stairs of the Kuala Lumpur Tower 21 times non-stop in 24 hours, back in December 2016.
“So far, I have recorded seven entries in the Malaysia Book of Records (MBOR) and two records in the Abor between 1997 and last year.
“For me, it will be a proud achievement in my over 20 years of climbing and I will feel complete if I were to create a record that is recognised by the world,” he told reporters after the Abor Certificate presentation ceremony, here today.
The certificate was presented by Abor editor-in-chief Dr Biswaroop Roy Chowdhury.
The father of five, who is now working for Utusan Malaysia, has scaled seven peaks in the Himalayan Range, namely Gokyo Ri at 5557 metres high, Nagarjun Peak (5,100m), Chukung Ri (5,550m), Kongma La Pass (5,500m), Khalapattar (5,550m), Everest Base Camp (5,364m) and Chola Pass (5,420m).
