Mt Everest - Swim for Peace

In May 2010, Lewis Pugh swam in Lake Pumori on the Khumbu Glacier on Mt Everest, to highlight the melting of the glaciers in the Himalayas and the impact the reduced water supply will have on world peace. The 1 km (0.62 mile) swim, at an altitude of 5,200 metres, in 2°C water, took 22 minutes 51 seconds to complete and was done as part of the Clinton Global Initiative.
