Deshun Deysel is one of South Africa's leading female mountaineers. In her 15 year career as a high altitude mountaineer, she has been on 14 major expeditions to five continents.
In 1996 she made history by being part of the first group of South Africans to plant the new democratic flag on the top of Mt. Everest. As a novice climber Deshun was only able to reach Camp 2 at 6,500 metres (21,325 feet) that year but subsequently returned to Everest in 2003. Bad weather, however, thwarted that attempt as Deshun made her way to the summit. Again she had to turn back – this time a mere 500 metres from the top (8,848 metres, 29,028 feet).

He is the youngest of three children and because his two older siblings were much older than him, he grew up keeping himself company and very quickly developed a vivid imagination for tales and stories.

“My English teacher had had enough of me disrupting the class and as punishment, I had to work behind the scenes at a variety concert. That’s when I realised drama could be an outlet for my energy.”
