Double Ascent by Anshu Jamsenpa

Arunachal Pradesh mountaineer Anshu Jamsenpa has become the world’s first woman to scale Mt Everest twice in five days. Her ascent of the world’s tallest peak in the Himalayas at 7.45 am on Sunday was her fifth overall, and the second after May 16. The 32-year-old mother of two had started her fifth ascent on May 19, climbing almost non-stop from Everest Base Camp at 17,500ft till 10 pm. Dawa Sherpa Lama of Himalayan Adventures Private Limited that conducted Jamsenpa’s expedition said she began climbing Saturday morning and stopped briefly before the final push early Sunday morning. Jamsenpa’s husband and president of All Arunachal Pradesh Mountaineering and Adventure Sports Association, Tsering Wange, said, “God has answered the prayers of her admirers in Arunachal Pradesh and elsewhere in India and beyond.” The couple is based in Bomdila, the headquarters of West Kameng district of Arunachal Pradesh. This was not Jamsenpa’s first ‘double ascent’ of Mt Everest. On her first attempt in 2011, she had conquered the 29,029 ft peak twice in 10 days between May 12 and 21. Her third successful attempt was on May 18 two years later.
