Just 12 years old, Kaamya Karthikeyan is accomplishing several missions in life. Get ready to hear a whole new story of a young girl who has become the first in the world to scale her second ‘above 6,000 m’ peak, Mt Mentok Kangri II, 6,262 meters (20,544 feet), overlooking the Tso Moriri lake in Ladakh on August 24.
She is a student of Navy Children School, Mumbai, and daughter of a Naval officer. Her mission is not that easy but she is achieving it with such ease.
Showering praises for her achievement, the official Twitter account of Indian Navy posted a congratulatory message. Soon after that, the tweet was flooded with many congratulatory messages.
“#inspiration #prodigy FOCinC(W) felicitated Kaamya Karthikeyan #YoungAchiever of #IndianNavy family & #NavyChidrenSchool Mumbai & assured full support for future endeavours. Her mission: scale highest peaks in every continent #MtKilimanjaro #MtElbrus #MtKosciuszko #MtAconcagua”, they captioned on Twitter.
It should be noted that Kaamya Karthikeyan summited another ‘above 6000 m’ peak, Mt Stok Kangri, in August 2017, becoming the youngest in the world to do so, a defence spokesperson added.
The ambitious girl’s mission is to conquer the highest peaks in every continent and ski to both Poles, he echoed.
Interestingly, she has already scaled the highest peaks in Africa, Europe and Australia and is now preparing to take on Mt Aconcagua (6962 m), the highest peak of South America, he said.
