Buoyed by her recent success of being the youngest girl in the world and the first from Asia to scale Mt Kilimanjaro, 12-year-old Jahnavi Sriperambuduru from Alwal has now climbed the Yala Peak in Nepal. Speaking about her experience, Jahnavi says, “I returned to Kathmandu after undergoing training in Langtang Valley - Yala Peak for two weeks. I was accompanied by two support staff, Kajee Sherpa and my porter. We survived an avalanche last Thursday.”

Quiz her about the key to her success for this trip, Jahnavi quips, “I was trained by Dr Uma Maheshwar Rao and Praveen. Without their support my father could not have sent me. I dedicate my Yala Peak Summit achievement to these two generous souls. I had never met them before or known them, but these great souls came forward to support me. Also Olympic Coach Nagapuri Ramesh took personal interest and trained me at Gachibowli Stadium before I left to Nepal.”

Jahnavi has now taken up the Seven Summits mission, the dream of every mountaineer. The Seven Summits are the highest mountain peaks in each of the world’s seven continents. To begin with, 12-year-old will first scale the Mt. Everest. Her trainers have taken up the responsibility to raise funds for the expedition.

“Please pray and support for my ultimate expedition of Mt. Everest in April. We are still struggling for funds and sponsors. I have hope that some of you will certainly come forward and help me and contribute for my climb as I have only a week left to pay my first installment for my climbing permit to the Chinese government. I hope that all of you will spread my message and contribute generously to support me,” she concludes.
