It took her about a month to reach the top. Going by her unofficial Instagram account, she began her journey on 21 March 2021. “Going towards my dream. Mt. Annapurna I, whose elevation stands at 8091m making it fall under 14× 8000m plus peaks of the world. This huge massif is one of the deadliest mountains because of its unpredictable climate which makes it difficult for a climber to climb,” she wrote.
“So here I am, going on an expedition to mt. Annapurna with a lot of enthusiasm and confidence, the duration is 45 days for this expedition,” she added.
