37 year old Anshu Jamsenpa climbed the 8,848 meter mountain on May 16 and went back to climb it again after a short period of rest, thus setting the women's record for double ascent of the mountain within a single season.

Jamsenpa has climbed the mountain for a total of five times as of now, including another double-ascent which was attempted by the climber in 2011 within a gap of 10 days. Her current record is for climbing the world's highest mountain twice within 5 days only.

A mother of two, Jampsenpa hails from the state of Arunachal Pradesh and resides with her husband in Bomdila, the headquarters of West Kameng district of the state of Arunachal Pradesh.

Anshu's husband is the president of All Arunachal Pradesh Mountaineering and Adventure Sports Association, Tsering Wange and was overwhelmed by his wife's feat. “God has answered the prayers of her admirers in Arunachal Pradesh and elsewhere in India and beyond," he said in a statement.

Jamsenpa has also been congratulated by the Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh for doing the country proud.
