Muriki Pulakita Hasvi scales Africa's highest mountain Mount Kilimanjaro
New Delhi : A 13-year-old girl from Hyderabad scaled Africa's highest mountain - Mount Kilimanjaro.
Muriki Pulakita Hasvi expressed her happiness and experience with the news agency ANI. "It was an adventurous experience, Mount Kilimanjaro is such a mountain where you experience all the weather conditions so I," she said.
She told that the preparation for the hike started three months back when she did the Everest base camp in April this year. "After doing base camp, I realised that I want to complete all seven summits therefore I stated preparation then and there," she added.
"What I learnt in all this is that for mountaineering, you have to be mentally strong, so I used to do all the activities like Yoga and Meditation to keep myself mentally," she said.
She has expressed her desires to do all seven summits before 2024 and she has designed a plan for it.
"My message to all young generations is not to ask them to choose Mountaineering but to basically tell them to conquer their mountain in their lives," she added.
