Raj Tamang the founder of Responsible Adventures came up with the idea of teeing from venues above 5000 meters from as many places as possible. He has tee offs from Throrung La pass, 5 passes above 5000 meters in the Upper Dolpo region and 6 tee offs from the Gokyo Lakes and Everest Base camp areas. This is probably a world record of sorts.

He has played 18 hole golf twice and 9 hole golf once. Hence, he isn’t a regular golfer at all. He did this just for the sake of doing something no one else has done.
