Arunachalee climber Anshu Jamsenpa today scripted history by scaling Mount Everest twice within five days. Jamsenpa, a mother of two, had conquered the world’s highest peak for the fourth time on May 16 last, as reported by PTI.

She began her double ascent on Friday morning, her husband Tsering Wange informed. Jamsenpa along with Nepali climber Furi Sherpa scaled the peak at 8 am on Sunday morning.

The mountaineer from Arunachal Pradesh had reached the top of Mount Everest at 9.15 am on May 16 last. Jamsenpa set the world record for becoming the first woman climber to reach the top of Mount Everest twice within five days.

She is also the first Indian woman to reach the top of Everest for the fifth time. The 32-year-old had achieved the feat of scaling Everest twice within 10 days in 2011. Anshu had also climbed Everest in 2013 from the Nepal side.

“My only aim now is to unfurl the national flag once again atop Mount Everest and pay homage to Lord Buddha. I seek blessings and support from my fellow countrymen,” Jamsenpa was quoted as having said before starting her second ascent.

Prayers were organised in several monasteries and temples back home in Arunachal Pradesh and elsewhere in the region. Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama had flagged off the mountaineer’s double ascent expedition from Guwahati on April 2 this year.
