6-year-old Pune boy becomes youngest Indian to reach Everest base camp

Advait Bhartia along with his mother, Payal, had to walk through dense forests and the Dudh Khosi River to come to their destination.

A young boy from Pune has defied all odds to successfully scale the base camp of Mount Everest, the highest peak in the world. Advait Bhartia along with his mother Payal trekked for twelve long days from the Lukla village to reach the base camp on November 3rd, 2016.

The mother-son duo had to cross through dense pine tree forests and the Dudh Khosi River to come to their destination. The fact that the treacherous mountain trail, reduced levels of atmospheric oxygen and subzero temperatures (dropping as low as -8 to -12 degrees C) did not deter the six-year-old from carrying out the feat is truly incredible. The Mount Everest base camp is located alongside the dreaded Khumbu Icefall and is 17,593ft above sea level.
