Pema Diki Sherpa reached the last camp of 7756 m high Mt Kamet in India in an expedition organized by Indian Mountaineering Federation on 23rd September 2012. Diki, Temba Tsheri Sherpa and Shiv Bahadur Sapkota represented Nepal Mountaineering Association in the climb.
Mt Kamet located at Uttarakhand, India was considered the tallest mountain of the world for a long time until Everest was discovered. It is the third highest peak in India. Diki says that the climb was mostly on ice and rock. 13 people from the team reached the height of 7100 meter. They had to turn around owing to bad weather conditions on this rarely climbed peak.
Diki says, “This was a totally different climb from what I have done before. I feel stronger with this new experience.”
