Chandra Bahadur Dangi, the world’s shortest man according to the Guinness World Record, is in Syndey, Australia. Bahadur Dangi is carried around by his nephew in a baby sack, as he visited the Syndey Opera House. Bahadur Dangi also saw a possum and koala for the first time.

Measuring only 54.6cm in height, the diminutive man shot to fame in February when he was discovered in his native Nepal.

Bahadur Dangi has an ambitious to do list, hoping in the near future to visit Mount Everest: “I’d love to see it, I’ve never been there,” he said speaking through a translator in Sydney yesterday.

He once lived life as an unknown, but now he is grateful his very small stature has brought him recognition: “Before I had nothing to do, now life is more interesting,” he said.

The 72-year-old is unwed and does not have any children. He does not appear to have any plans to get married.
