Parth Upadhyaya – I became the youngest Mumbaikar to climb the world’s highest peak Mount Everest

‘On 23rd May 2019, 5am I became the youngest Mumbaikar to climb the world’s highest peak Mount Everest. People often ask me what is my biggest achievement and they expect my answer to be standing on the summit of Everest summit but for me, when I came back to Mumbai and at the airport, I saw my parents, friends and relatives waiting for me and seeing various emotions on their faces like pride, happiness, satisfaction and relief, that was the most magical experience of my life. Because I knew I had made it back home safely after the expedition where as so many of my good friends had died in front of me on the mountain and they were not lucky enough to make it back home to their families who will never get to see them again. Reaching the top is never the goal. Reaching back down safely was always the goal for me!’ said Parth Upadhyaya
