  EverestHistory.com:  Daniel Mazur


Daniel Mazur in considered to be one of the top climbers in the world. Climbing Magazine has given him the title of, “most successful American to ever launch an expedition”. In October of 1991 he reached the summit of Mt. Everest by an “accident”.  He met a Russian climber, Roman, in a climbing shop in Kathmandu. Daniel had come to Kathmandu hoping to find a climbing partner and climb a peak. Roman was headed up Everest with a primarily Russian group led by Anatoli Boukreev and Vladimir Balyberdin.

The expedition agreed to let Daniel join the group and climb with Roman, what they did not tell Daniel was that his climbing partner had suffered childhood tuberculosis and only had the use of one lung, no one expected Roman and his climbing partner to reach the summit. They did, and Roman became the first Soviet Georgian and the second oldest climber to reach the top of Everest.

Daniel has lived in North America, England and Asia. He works as a building designer, Himalayan explorer and guide and tests climbing and trekking equipment for manufacturers. He has climbed seven of the world’s fourteen, 8000m peaks. He began traveling throughout Himalayan region in 1986, since then he has climbed Everest, K2, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Shishapangma, and Gasherbrum I. He has led successful trekking and mountaineering expeditions to Tibet, Nepal, Tadjikistan, Pakistan, India, China, Africa and North America. Daniel also works through the Mount Everest Foundation for Sustainable Development in Nepal and Tibet, working to bring health care and education to small villages and improve the cleanliness of water and sanitation.

Daniel is also a writer and photographer, his work has been published in numerous national and international journals and magazines, he also offers multi media lectures on climbing and travel.
