12-year-old Indian Girl Becomes Youngest To Climb Mount Aconcagua

MUMBAI: A 12-year-old Indian girl student, Kaamya Karthikeyan has become the youngest in the world to climb the highest peak of the Andes Mountains in Argentina, South America, Mount Aconcagua, said an official on Sunday.

A Class VII student of Mumbai’s Navy Children School, Kaamya achieved the feat atop the 6962 metres tall mountain on February 1 where she unfurled the Indian Tricolour.

Kaamya, who is no stranger to tall mountains, had summited Ladakh’s 6,260 metres Mt. Mentok Kangri II, under extreme cold weather conditions on August 24 last year.

“Years of physical, mental preparations, regular participation in adventure sports combined with a strong character helped Kaamya in overcoming many hurdles and extreme climbing conditions to achieve this rare feat,” an official told.

Kaamya’s father is an Indian Navy Commander S. Karthikeyan while her mother Lavanya is an early childhood teacher.
