What would you expect a woman breaking a national record to do? Rest on her laurels and enjoy the adulation? 37-year-old Anshu Jamsenpa from Arunachal Pradesh doesn’t think like that. After returning from the Mount Everest peak for the fourth time last Tuesday, she tried a double ascent in a season and succeeded. This valiant woman has now become the only woman to set a record for a double ascent in a single season.
Confirming the news of her feat, Dawa Lama of Dream Himalaya Adventures told NDTV,”Anshu reached the summit of Everest at 8:00 am (local time) today for the second time this season, setting a new record.”
Anshu Jamsenpa had scripted history last week by becoming the only Indian woman to scale Everest four times. Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama had flagged off her double ascent expedition from Guwahati in Assam.

According to NDTV, more than 120 climbers have tried their luck to summit this season. High winds, fresh snowfall and extremely cold temperatures were some stumbling blocks mountaineers dealt with.
This year’s climbing season has been fraught with dangers. Two deaths have already been reported including the death of the ace Swiss mountaineer Ueli Steck who fell from a ridge during an acclimatization climb.
Anshu had scaled the Mount Everest twice in May 2011. She scaled it for the third time on May 18 in 2013.
She has exhibited exhibiting unparalleled physical and mental strength. SheThePeople.TV congratulates her for this achievement.
