Gurgaon mountaineer Sangeeta becomes oldest Indian woman to climb Mt Everest
| Wednesday | 23rd May, 2018
“Last year, when I made my first attempt to scale Mt Everest, we were evacuated after my health deteriorated.
Two years later, Bahl climbed Mt Elbrus (5642 M), Europe’s highest peak before becoming the third Indian woman climber to climb Mt Vinson (4897 M) in Antarctica in 2014.
Bahl, who originally hails from Jammu, bettered the record previously held by Prem Lata Aggarwal who had become the oldest Indian woman to scale Mt Everest at the age of 48 in 2011.
Incidentally, I climbed Mt Everest on the same date as my husband did two years ago,” said Bahl.
The same year, Bahl tried to scale Mt McKinley in North America before she suffered a knee injury.
