A Great Mountaineer
Met my fren T Ravichandran during my visit to the Vihara temple in Brickfields in this week Wesak Day celebration. Ravi is no ordinary person but to me he is one of the greatest mountaineer in Malaysia and maybe even within ASEAN.
He is the only person in ASEAN who did a solo climb (without any help & support from local Sherpa) and reach the summit of Mount Everest from the North - Tibet side and at the same time raise funds to benefit various charity houses in Malaysia.
