After my training started for Mt. Everest, there was no looking back. I was focused and committed to my goal of reaching the top of Mt. Everest.

The women in the expedition come from diverse background. It is going to be challenging and learning experience for all of us to trek. Such challenging and adventurous expeditions are an opportunity for women to realise their potential and serve as strong building blocks for the communities at large.

The problem with women in the country is that when they are faced with challenges like say climbing a mountain they feel oh! I am a women and I cannot do this. You have to give up this attitude to survive and fight in life be it climbing a mountain or fighting for own sense of security.

I asked myself what could possibly be worse than death. I was scared, but didn't tell anyone. The decision to continue changed my life.

You know, when I first expressed the desire to become a professional mountaineer, the objection that my family, relatives, and the people around me raised was that mountaineering is not something women should ever think of. According to them, the only profession women should take up --- if at all they insist on working-- is that of a school teacher.

Many people suffer from a misconception that mountaineering is just climbing and descending mountains with a rucksack. Well, it is much, much more. Any person who has had some experience in this will tell you how the adventure toughens a person, both mentally and physically.

I am extremely proud to have accomplished this achievement on behalf of my country and all the women who live here with courage and determination. This experience has again taught me that if you have the will and focus, no matter where you come from, you can conquer the world.

The mountains have taught me qualities like humanity, patience and selflessness, which are essential, not just for mountaineers but for every human being. When it comes to learning, there is no better classroom.

This question has been coming to me ever since I climbed Everest. People used to ask me, now what next? I used to ponder that I have scaled the highest, now where to go.

Even when foul weather thwarted my initial attempt of planting my National Flag atop Mt Denali, my determination to climb this peak did not fizzle out; instead, it re-bolstered my will to start anew and ascend Denali.

Now after seven summits having raised the tricolor on all the highest continental peaks of the world, there are two places I would like to unfurl the tricolor are the South Pole and North Pole.

I met Bachendri Pal as I wanted my daughters to be into adventure sports. But meeting with the legendary mountaineer changed my perception and I also took to the adventure sports.

I was married at a young age and then I got busy with the family. It was only when I turned 35 that I got interested in mountaineering.

A mountain of lesser height can be more arduous than the mighty Mount Everest—the highest point on the earth.

I have scaled many peaks and I have come to understand that each peak is a challenge in itself.
