Mount Everest, world’s highest summit is conquerable, but not conquerable and every mountain climber’s notion. It is surely, very surely no piece of cake to climb all the way to the top of Mount Everest, but some folks really have the gut and the will. Meet someone who has achieved this feat ‘multiple’ times. Yes, MULTIPLE!
Anshu Jansenpa, Indian female hiker from Arunachal Pradesh, has made it to the highest point on Earth – the peak of Mount Everest, not once, not twice, not even thrice but a full-on four times! Hence becoming the first Indian woman to climb Everest for four-stunning times. And this isn’t the only record Anshu has secured; she already holds the record of being the only woman in the world to have hike to the highest peak twice in a single season, within a gap of 10 days! This lady has really got it, is she made of steel or something?
The 32-year-old, mother of two girls, touched the peak of Mount Everest for the fourth time on Tuesday at 9:15 AM; climb was started at 1:45 AM on May 13. This summit expedition was started after the 38-days adaptation at the Everest Base Camp and she is perfectly fit, fine and healthy after completion of the expedition and is on her way back to the base camp now. Her spokesperson also said that she might attempt a double expedition this time, again! Told you, she is made of steel.

Anshu has conquered the Everest peak twice within 10 days between May 12 to 21, 2011 and made the record. And if she is successful with her double expedition this time, she will become the first women in world to climb Mount Everest for five times. She has already made India proud by unfurling the tricolour flag for four times and we hope she keeps doing that. Anshu Jamsenpa spoke to officials at the Everest Base Camp and in Kathmandu over satellite phone from the world’s tallest peak after unfurling the tricolour and clicking testimonial photos.
A pack of energy and motivation, Anshu strongly looks for the double ascents of the conditions remain favourable. And hats down to Anshu Jansenpa, you go lady. And it must be feeling super-incredible standing on top of the world!
