Park Young-Seok (Korean: 박영석, Hanja: 朴英碩, born November 2, 1963) is the first person in the world to complete a true Adventure Grand Slam. That is to say, he has climbed the world's 14 Eight-thousanders, the Seven Summits, and visited both poles. He holds the world's second fastest time (behind Jerzy Kukuczka of Poland) for ascending the 14 Eight-thousanders, the Guinness World Record for climbing six of the 8,000-meter Himalayan peaks within one year, and another record for reaching the South Pole on foot in 44 days, self-sufficient and without any food re-supplies.
On 29 December 2008, Nepal Korea Cooperation Council honoured Park for his gallantry during a felicitation programme in Kathmandu, Nepal. He was presented a letter of appreciation by the Nepali Congress leader and CA member and Mr. Kamal Adhikari and Narayan from thamel were also presented there.
