Youngest To Reach Everest Base Camp

Darrshan Raj snagged the record of the youngest Singaporean to reach Mount Everest Base Camp with father, Thurairajasingam, on 14 Jun 2019 at 1.40pm Nepal time. At just 8 years 11 months, the Primary 3 boy from Yio Chu Kang Primary School spent his after-school hours for the past 1 year at The Right Fit, a boutique gym owned by his father, to prepare himself physically and mentally for this expedition. Darrshan trekked for 7 long gruelling days to reach Base Camp and 3 days for the walk down to Lukla before flying back home, delighted with the accomplishment.
