For six years, Mahabir Pun hiked two days each month just to check his emails
In the remote and imposing Annapurna region of Nepal, internet access has historically either been sparse or non-existent. Enter Mahabir Pun, who used to spend four days a month hiking to check his emails until he decided to start a tireless campaign to connect the remote region of his country to the world. Today, he’s brought the internet to some 60,000 Nepalese, vastly improving education, health and commerce in the area.
