Jaipur's Ayushi Mishra climbed 18700 feet in 3 days


The Jaipur city welcomed with its arms open its very own resident from the locality of Mansarovar, Ayushi Mishra. A planning engineer by work, Ayushi recently earned name and fame in climbing up a hill that is 18700 feet high from the ground level. Being a success at this attempt of hers, the young woman climbed up all the way on this hill within a period of 3 days.

Youth Hostel Association of India takes the idea of trekking forward:

Ayushi shared that this initiative was taken by the Youth Hostel Association of India and a group of 38 people who are young and full of vigor began the climbing process in the hills of Uttarakhand from Joshi Math. The climbing began on August 9, 2016.

Group members’ details:

The group of 38 spoke of 33 male members and 5 female members.

Day-wise trekking details:

Ayushi shared the day-wise climbing process. She expressed that on day 1 the group climbed approximately 17 kilometers and reached Ghaghariya Point. On the second day of climbing, the group members went up by another 14.5 kilometers at Hem Kund and on day 3 the members climbed another 10 kilometers to reach up to Valley of Flowers. The height of the hills from Joshi Math up to Valley of Flowers is approximated at 18700 feet.

Falling prey to diarrhoea, recovering and trekking onwards again with courage:

With great enthusiasm, we forgot some basics. Ayushi shared that because of the great excitement and energy involved in the climbing process, the group members went up by 17 kilometers on day 1 of their trek and went through and amidst paths which were broke, had sharp and broken stones along the path. The path also included waterfalls and rivers and taking this route in a thrill, Ayushi acquired diarrhoea. Her health deteriorated and seeing this, the group members that were climbing along with Ayushi decided to not climb further and head backwards.
Ayushi did not want this attempt to go futile and see all efforts of all the group members along with herself go to waste. She geared up and gathered all her courage and strength to trek onwards on her path. It was then when the group climbed 14.5 kilometers on the second day and 10 kilometers on the third day of the trek to finally reach Valley of Flowers.

Returning back home and trekking down the hills again:

Covering this height of 18700 feet within a period of 3 days, the group members took another two days to climb down and complete their trekking journey to return home with memories.
