World's shortest man

Chandra Bahadur Dangi from Nepal holds the record for world's shortest man, measuring 54.6cm (21.5 in) tall and its already listed in the Guinness world record of 2014.

The measurement also makes Chandra the shortest adult human to ever have their height verified by Guinness World Records, beating a benchmark set by Gul Mohammed, (New Delhi, India, 1957-1997) who measured 57 cm (22.5 in).

The shortest man- Chandra claims to be 73 years old and weighs 14.5kg. He has spent his entire life in the remote Nepalese mountain village of Rhimkholi, about 250 miles west of Kathmandu.

He lives there with his five brothers (all of an average height) and makes his living weaving traditional Nepalese garments. Chandra's home is so remote that it wasn't until recently that he gained attention; a forest contractor cutting timber in the village met him and informed local media.
