TOPIC: Five-year-old Indian boy Harshit Saumitra reaches Everest Base Camp, claims world record

Five-year-old Indian boy Harshit Saumitra reaches Everest Base Camp, claims world record 5 years, 7 months ago #1105

On Friday, Harshit Saumitra, a Class 1 student of GD Goenka School in New Delhi, reached the Everest Base Camp (5364 m), becoming arguably the youngest person to complete the difficult trek.

It took the child 10 days to cover the distance of 62km trek, many sections of which were covered by 5-7 inch of snow from the snowstorm caused by the tail-end of cyclone Hudhud.

The family plans to register the feat in record books like the Guinness World Records and the Limca Book of World Records by submitting the necessary proofs.

Harshit who climbed Rohtang Pass (3930 m) before attempting EBC has his eyes set on climbing Mount Kilimanjaro (5895 m) in Africa next and plans to attempt Mount Everest (8848 m) in a few years.
