10-year-old skater girl from Mumbai climbs Everest base camp
In a rare achievement, 10-year-old skater Rhythm Mamania from Mumbai became one of the youngest Indian mountaineers to climb Everest Base Camp, a trek she completed in 11 days.
Her parents – Harshal and Urmi – accompanied her during the trek earlier this month.
“Rhydham, a class 5 student of MET Rishikul Vidyalaya in suburban Bandra, reached the Everest base camp around 1 pm on May 6,” her mother Urmi told PTI on Sunday.
He said that the base camp is located at 5,364 meters and it took him 11 days to complete the expedition.
“Whether it’s the skating ring or the base camp summit, it’s determination that takes you a long way,” said Ridham, a resident of Worli.
“Along with skating, trekking has always been my passion, but this trek taught me how important it is to be a responsible trekker and solve the mountain waste management problem,” he added.
His mother said Ridham had a passion for scaling mountains since the age of five and his first long trek was the 21 km Dudhsagar and since then he has climbed a few peaks in the Sahyadri ranges such as Maholi, Soundai, Karnala and Lohgarh. .
He added that during the base camp trek the rhythm lasted for 8-9 hours at different altitudes in different weather conditions, including hail and snow and temperatures as low as minus 10 degrees Celsius.
The girl accompanied a group of Kutch trekkers to the base camp with the Nepal-based company ‘Story Adventures’.
Urmi said, “After reaching the base camp, the rest of the group decided to take the helicopter on the way back, but Ridham insisted that she would walk down. And so the four of us decided to get down. Decided,” said Urmi.
