Known to have an adventurous streak, it was Huma Qureshi's dream to go mountaineering and she has finally fulfilled it.
Huma who didn’t have to undergo any training before the climb, says, “It’s the highest peak in South East Asia, and we climbed 4,095.2 m. I had never done mountaineering, so it was intense. Going up and looking around from there was an amazing experience.” She further adds, “But you have to be physically fit, so we practised for it a couple of weeks prior to the ascent.”
Describing her mountaineering experience, Huma shares that the first day was quite crazy, as they climbed for six hours. She says, “We reached midway in the evening, had dinner early and passed out. We woke up around 2 am and started climbing again at 3 am. The idea was to reach the summit before sunrise.”
Huma thoroughly enjoyed her trip and is keen on going for more adventurous trips like this, depending on the availability of time.
