83-year-old mountain climber honoured in Asia Book of Records

Last Thursday, the Asia Book of Records officially recognized 83-year-old Huyng Van Rang as the oldest climber to scale Mount Fansipan, Vietnam’s highest peak. The Binh Duong native has reached the peak of Fansipan, also known as the Roof of Indochina, four times, with his most recent journey taking place earlier this year. According to Rang, the key to his good health is moderate exercise and an appropriate diet.
