In Conversation with Ameesha Chauhan
Someone shrewdly cultivated, ‘Faith will move mountains!’ This weekend #IdeasWorthInspiring is going to have the conversation with a Mountaineer. Her name is Ameesha Chauhan and just as her skills, her willpower is commendable! Let’s skim through the purpose of inviting her. ‘Mountaineering seems easy, unlike its training’, Ameesha told the crew. She did her basic mountaineering course from NIM Uttarkashi Institute. She also completed her advance mountaineering, search and rescue and more courses. She climbed 8848 meters to the highest peak of world, Mount Everest after a dreadful attempt at the expense on being withered away. She failed to reach at the peak after climbing 8748 m on 16th May, 2019. She went all the way down towards the base camp and planned for another attempt. Finally, on 23rd May at 8:20 A.M. she achieved her goal and spiked terra firma with the Indian flag! During that journey, Ameesha realised she had a frost bite in her left finger and toe and so was hospitalised. But the injuries and experiences weren’t going to stop her as mountaineering is her passion. Just after a partial recovery, she participated in National Skiing and Snowboarding Championship 2020 at Auli, Uttarakhand. She also fetched many other peaks such as Mt. Lobuche peak in Khumbu, Nepal and Maniranga peak where she drew a sketch at the altitude over 6593 metres. It would be an enthusing experience to watch such a brisk lady talk about her life!
