Hart van Nederland - 8 juni 2008.mpeg [02:40]
De 40-jarige Herman Kristen uit Alkmaar is de eerste Nederlander die op het topje van de Lhotse (8516m) berg in Nepal heeft gestaan. De berg ligt pal naast de Mount Everest (8848m) en de top ligt zo'n 300 meter lager, maar hij doet er qua moeilijkheidsgraad zeker niet voor onder. Een knappe prestatie dus van deze Nederlander.
