Mingma Gyabu Sherpa (also known as Mingma David), born in 1989,[2][1] is a Nepalese mountaineer and renowned rescue crew. Mingma Gyabu is the youngest person to climb all 14 main 8000m peaks.[3][4] He also holds the Guinness World Record for the title of "Fastest time to climb Everest and K2",[5] having climbed the first and second highest peak in the world within 61 days.[1]

As of 2020, 43 climbers have made successful ascents of all 14 eight thousanders including Mingma Gyabu. Among all 14 peaks above 8000m, Mingma climbed eight of them with Nirmal Purja as a climbing sherpa in 2019.


The Union of Asian Alpine Association (UAAA) has honoured Sherpa with one of the Piolet d'Or Asia Awards with the tile of Sherpa of the year for his commitment to technical climbings and positive environmental stewardship in the mountains in 2019.[6]
