GUWAHATI, June 11 - After creating a world record by scaling the Mount Everest twice within five days, mountaineer Ansu Jamsenpa now nurtures a dream of leading an all-women expedition to the world�s highest peak, doing her own bit of promoting empowerment of women.

Her true grit, now recognised the world over, is a part of inner strength that she derives from positive thinking, Jamsenpa said in a candid discussion with scribes here on Saturday.

As the Guest of the Month at the Guwahati Press Club, the ace mountaineer narrated her journey of scaling the world�s highest peak on five occasions, another record for any Indian woman mountaineer.

After her successful summit on May 16, 2017, she completed her double ascent on May 21 this year. The mountaineer from Arunachal achieved the feat of scaling Mt Everest twice within 10 days in 2011 and carried out another successful expedition in 2013.

�People know my success story, mostly the glamour part of it, but the struggle and efforts put behind it are still not much known. I would definitely like to pen down my journey,� she replied when asked about her plans of writing a book on her journey so far.

For women, inspired by the life and feat of Jamsenpa, her only advice is to be self-reliant in every field and never looking for excuses of not attaining their goals. �Even before starting mountaineering, I proved myself to my family, due to which I got their support. No government schemes or policies can help women unless they have a determination to come out and compete,� she stated while revealing her plan to lead an Everest expedition of a women�s team.

�As ours is a male-dominated society, we need to do our bit for promoting women empowerment. Of course, lots of details like sponsorship and team selection are yet to be planned,� she added.

Though worried about the changing climatic condition around the highest peak and growing number of untrained climbers leading to accidents and inconvenience, Anshu said that inexperienced and untrained people must not go for such expeditions as they put their lives in peril and also create inconvenience for others. �The Nepal government must look into that aspect,� she added.

The ace climber has many other future plans, including turning her focus on smaller unclimbed peaks. Regarding the possibility of another Everest feat with her daughter, Jamsenpa said that she would like to go for such an expedition but only if her children are interested in taking up the journey.

�If they want to go for climbing Mount Everest, I would definitely support. However, I would never push them to take up this journey, just because they are my children,� she added.
