The first Indian woman to scale Mount Everest four times, Anshu Jamsenpa, will attempt a double ascent to climb the world's highest peak for a fifth time, her husband Tsering Wange said on Wednesday May 17,2017
The Arunachal Pradesh mountaineer yesterday scripted history by becoming the first Indian woman to conquer the 8,848 feet Mount Everest for a fourth time.
"Anshu is very keen for the double ascent. We have already paid for her fifth permit to climb the Everest and the paper formalities have also been completed," Mr Wange told IANS.
"She (Anshu) is likely to reach the Everest Base Camp today (Wednesday) or tomorrow (Thursday) and the expedition team will take a decision for her double ascent. Nonetheless, we are elated with Anshu's achievement. It is a historic moment for Arunachal Pradesh and India," he said.
