Born and brought up in Jhunjhunu district of Rajasthan, Anita Jhajhadia successfully scaled the peak on April 10. Jhajadia, a mother of two, achieved this victory despite suffering from a slipped disc due to a previous incident.

Jhajhadia visited the Amarnath shrine in 2015 with her family. The route to the shrine included rugged terrain and difficult pathways. Beating all odds, Jhajhadia successfully reached the shrine and was appreciated by the soldiers stationed there for her timing. The soldiers also exclaimed that with her speed, she could surely scale the Everest.



It was at this moment that Jhajhadia made up her mind. To begin her journey for the Everest, Jhajhadia emptied her PF account and took a loan. The total cost of the journey to the peak was around Rs. 28 lakh.

To train for the treacherous journey ahead, Jhajhadia went to the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute, Darjeeling, and successfully completed the course.

Asha Jhajhadia has become the first woman from Rajasthan to climb the peak and we wish her the best!
