Hari Budha Magar, a former British Gurkha soldier who climbed the world's highest peak, Mt Everest, has arrived in Kathmandu.

To welcome him, Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation Sudan Kirati among others reached the Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA).

Budha has set a world record for being the first 'double amputee above the knee' to reach atop of the Mt Everest.

He is also holding a press conference in Kathmandu today (Tuesday).

Budha Magar has climbed Mt Everest with the help of a prosthetic leg. After nearly five years of effort, Budha Magar successfully climbed Mt Everest.

Budha Magar, who hails from Mirul in Thabang Rural Municipality of Rolpa, lost both his legs above the knee in 2010 during the war in Afghanistan while serving in the British Army.
