Anshu Jamsenpa from Arunachal Pradesh is all set to conquer Mt. Everest for the 4th time
A mother of two children, Anshu Jamsenpa who hails from Bomdila, a remote town in Arunachal Pradesh, India had created a record by climbing and unfurling the national tricolour on Mt. Everest twice within just 10 days. And now, Anshu has already embarked her journey to conquer the highest peak for the fourth time.
Anshu Jamsenpa climbed Mt. Everest on 12th May 2011 and again on 21st May 2011. With this, she became the first mother in the world to summit the world’s highest peak twice in a span of just 10 days. She again climbed Mt. Everest on 18 May 2013 and that created another record; she became the first Indian woman mountaineer to climb the world’s highest peak thrice.
Anshu Jamsenpa has also made a record when she has scaled three peaks in just six days; Lobuche Peak 6119 meter , Pokalde Peak 5896 meter and Island Peak 6189 meter on 13th, 16th and 18th May 2014.
This brave lady from Arunachal Pradesh has already set off for her fourth endeavour which is expected to end by the last week of May.
It seems, mountaineering is in Anshu’s blood that gears her up to add on one feat after another to her career. We salute the spirit of this Indian lady, who has not only broken the stereotypical beliefs about women’s abilities, but also has passionately carried her dream and let our country’s name shine at the top of the world.
