Meet Premlata Agarwal. She was a housewife and mother of to girls when she first took up mountaineering. It was at the age of 37 that she undertook her first climb. And since then, she has been on a wonderful journey full of memories and experiences.
It was when she went to drop her two daughters for tennis practice that she first noticed mountaineering. Being supported and inspired by the legendary Bachendri Pal, she decided to give the adventure sport a try.
And after almost a decade of training and practice under the mentorship of Bachendri Pal, Premlata successful climbed the world’s highest peak – Mt Everest at the age of 48 and became India’s oldest women to do so.
She has been mountaineering and climbing many peaks. Recently, she became India’s first female to conquer the Seven Summits of the world. Her passion for this sport has no limit and hopes to inspire other girls from India. She says, “I want to change the mindset of people who think they are weak. It's difficult but not impossible. And one can do that being a housewife also."
