On 16 April Everester, Mr Bhagwan Chawale successfully summited Mount Annapurna, which is the 10th highest mountain in the world at 8,091 metres and one of the most difficult peaks due to the constant fear of avalanches. Until last month only 300 mountaineers had successfully summited this peak.
Four camps are set up during the ascent of this mountain with camp number 4 positioned at 6,800 metres and despite the challenges faced, including rope shortages and heavy snow fall, Bhagwan’s determination encouraged the team to make a second push for the summit which was achieved at 2:00pm on 16 April.
Bhagwan proudly flew both the Indian and Mecc Alte flag symbolising our global product offering, both of which were previously seen flying during his climb of Mount Everest!
In the next 10 days Bhagwan has plans to scale the Dhaulagiri, Lhotse and Manaslu peaks; thus completing four 8,000 metre peaks within five months and once again Mecc Alte will reach new heights. We wish him the best of luck.
