Miura said that climbing Everest was the perfect gift for him
80-year-old Japanese climber Yuichiro Miura said he received a beautiful gift, having made a successful ascent of Mount Everest.

Miura began his ascent from the base camp at an altitude of 5,300 meters on May 16. Last Thursday, he climbed to the summit of Mount Everest at an altitude of 8,848 meters, becoming the oldest conqueror of the highest peak in the world.

On Sunday the 80-year-old Miura was taken by helicopter from a height of 6,400 meters in Nepal's capital Kathmandu.

He held a press conference in the Nepalese capital, to express my gratitude to all those who supported him in the ascent. Miura said that if a person does not give up his dream come true.
