Johann Peries Successfully Summits Mount Everest, Becomes Second Sri Lankan Achiever
Johann Peries today successfully summited Mount Everest becoming the second Sri Lankan to do so.
The Himalayan Foundation Sri Lanka in a statement said Johann Peries summited at 5.55 am Nepal time today during his second attempt.
Peries’ earlier attempt in 2016 was unsuccessful when his oxygen tank failed 400 metres before the summit.
