Itanagar: A girl from Arunachal Pradesh created history by climbing Mt Everest twice in 10 days and also became the first woman mountaineer in the world to achieve the feat twice in the same season.
Anshu Jamsenpa, a 32-year-old mother of two children, unfurled the tricolour and an Arunachal logo at the summit of the 29,035 feet peak yesterday at 5.05 am local time, official sources said here today.
She had earlier been on the top of the world on May 12. Hailing from West Kameng district, Anshu offered a short thanks-giving prayer to Lord Buddha on reaching the summit.
Anshu is also the leader of the International Everest Expedition team consisting of 10 members from six countries, the sources said.
Another Arunachalee girl Tine Mena also scaled the world’s highest peak on May 9. Mena hails from Roing in Lower Dibang Valley district.
