Nirmal “Nims” Purja, the famed mountaineer from the Netflix documentary “14 Peaks,” has shared a heartfelt post on his social media platforms amid ongoing sexual misconduct allegations. He thanked his supporters, saying, “THANK YOU. Please know your faith in me is not misplaced.” Reflecting on his humble beginnings in Nepal, he emphasized his commitment to diversity and inclusion in mountaineering.

The allegations, first reported by the New York Times, involve two women accusing Nirmal “Nims” Purja of unwanted advances. Experienced climber and former Miss Finland, Lotta Hintsa, and American doctor April Leonardo, described incidents where Purja allegedly kissed them without consent, made aggressive advances, or touched them sexually against their wishes.
