• Solan-based mountaineer Baljeet Kaur (27) was found on Mt Annapurna in Nepal today, a day after she reportedly went missing near Camp IV while descending from the peak.
    • Annapurna is the tenth-highest mountain in the world, standing at 8,091 metres above sea level.
  • Baljeet successfully scaled Mt Everest (8,848.46 m) with her guide Mingma Sherpa in May 2022. This was her third feat in the last spring season. The duo scaled Mt Annapurna (8,091 m) on April 28 and Mt Kanchenjunga (8,586 m) on May 12.
  • A resident of the non-descript Panjrol village in Solan, Baljeet has become the first Indian woman mountaineer to successfully scale 7,161-m Pumori peak in Nepal.
    • She was part of a 12-member delegation that achieved that feat under the Government of India-sponsored “Mt Everest Masiff Expedition-2021”.
