Special Achievement Award

The 7th Ulju Mountain Film Festival has selected mountaineer KIM Hong-bin as the recipient of the Special Achievement Award, and prepared a program to remember his achievements.

As one of Korea’s leading mountaineers, KIM Hong-bin became the first disabled person to summit all 14 eight-thousanders and the highest peaks on each of the 7 continents, despite missing all 10 fingers.

He has also trained for skiing and cycling as a Paralympic athlete.
