Rizwan Shah, 95
As a young man Rizwan Shah would carry mail and other goods by foot over the 14,000-foot Khunjerab Pass into China on the old Silk Road. He said avalanches were a constant danger and in the early days his only foot wear were Ibex skins that he tied to his feet. Known as one of the fastest couriers in Hunza, Rizwan Shah would complete the round trip in about 30 days. In order to minimize his load he carried very little food. To fight off hunger he would tie a sash tightly around his waist with a stone next to his stomach.
