This 40-Year-Old Mother of 4 Girls From Arunachal Just Scaled Mt. Everest!

May 17, 2018 19:19

40-year-old mother of four Muri Linggi has done us all proud as she becomes the third woman from Arunachal Pradesh to conquer Mount Everest – the highest mountain peak in the world.

A peon in the state education department, Muri has certainly been extremely dedicated and self-driven. By scaling Everest, she becomes the third woman summiteer from the state to climb the 8,848 m (29,029 feet) mountain.

Her expedition was flagged off on April 5 from Roing, which is in the Lower Dibang Valley in Arunachal Pradesh. She reached the base camp on April 20, but her plans for a summit assault were foiled due to inclement weather. She had to bide her time without losing focus, and re-started her summit campaign on 10 May.

One thing is for sure, her sheer will power and determination seems to have kept her going long after most of us would have given up!

What a feat!

“It usually takes climbers five days to reach the peak from base camp. Linggi cut her time short by not stopping her climbing even during the night time,” informed DSO Raju Mipi, as reported in Arunachal Times.

Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh, Pema Khandu, came out in support of Muri and tweeted about Muri’s achievement hours after she completed the climb.

In yet another congratulatory message, Minister for State and Home Affairs Kiren Rijuju posted a picture of Muri at the peak holding a placard which read – ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao.’

As in every season, one finds stories of summiteers from all over the world with best-in-class equipment, planning, and team support. It is an inspiration to us that Muri was able to successfully scale the Everest with merely a fraction of the resources that are at the disposal of an average Everest summiteer. It speaks volumes of her drive and dedication.
