Shivangi Pathak is India’s youngest woman to scale Mt Everest, calls amputee Arunima Sinha her inspiration
Shivangi Pathak, a 16-year-old girl from Haryana, is the youngest Indian woman to scale Mt Everest from the Nepali side.
She is among 59 Indians who scaled the peak during this month.
Pathak climbed with the help of some Sherpa guides. She reached Kathmandu on Sunday.
Pathak says she was inspired by Arunima Sinha,who is the first Indian amputee to climb Mt Everest. Pathak’s message was that nothing is impossible for women. They can overcome every battle easily with willpower.
Pathak says that she used to watch the videos of Sinha since her early childhood. This inspired her to climb Everest at such young age.
She wanted to make the name of Haryana and Hisar, her home town, famous.
