Priyanka Mohite Early Life
Priyanka Mohite originally hails from Satara, Maharashtra, a city located at the foothills of the Sahyadri Mountains. She learned about the adventures of Chhatrapati Shivaji at school, which was brought to life by her uncle, who took her nieces and nephews on walks every weekend to keep them active.
“I am a history buff, and the Ajinkyatara fort was one of the first forts I visited when I came to India” (in Satara). It was a great source of inspiration to realize that I was following in the footsteps of Shivaji Maharaj. It also provides a lot of perspective for the material I am learning. However, my uncle insisted that we join a professional trekking company as the treks became more difficult. As a result, I started trekking to the mountains with Kailash Badal of Sahyadri Trekking, who is now 26,” says the 26-year-old.
Priyanka Mohite Career
As she decided to pursue a career in this lucrative but potentially dangerous profession, Priyanka returned to Satara in 2012 to complete her BSc (Biotech) degree. In addition, he completed his advanced mountaineering training at the same time. The next day, Priyanka climbed her first mountain, the 21500 feet high Bandarpunch mountain. And, even though Priyanka prefers to climb more rugged mountains rather than higher ones, she was given the opportunity to climb Mount Everest, the highest peak in the world.
A friend of mine studying at the Himalayan Mountaineering School in Darjeeling advised me about the opportunity of a lifetime to climb the highest mountain in the world. As Priyanka recalls, “their principal, Colonel Neeraj Rana, had planned to send his squad to Everest with the youngest members.”
“That’s how I was introduced to the opportunity, and I took advantage of it the next month.” Being fresh from the advanced course, I was in good shape and had become completely attuned to the environment. “I climbed to an altitude of about 18000 feet, and they chose myself and my partner to take part in the expedition.”
Priyanka Mohite family
A constant source of inspiration for the climber, Priyanka’s father is a man of faith. “I attribute the ‘stubborn’ in my personality to him, which is the ability to never give up. Besides, I also want to acknowledge Shivaji Maharaj, whose stories have inspired me from the very beginning.” Priyanka’s entire family was eagerly waiting for her message at home, and they were worried seeing the delay of two days.
Also, when Priyanka finally called her family after reaching the peak, her father asked her wish how much time she would spend with his family. Her response: “I want to climb the incredibly lovely peak I saw along the way.” On the other hand, his mother only said that he should come home safely first.
Priyanka, on the other hand, was not joking. He mentioned Mount Lhotse, which stands at 8,516 meters and is the fourth highest peak. Her mission was called off in 2014 due to an accident that claimed the lives of 16 Sherpa members. After an earthquake struck Nepal the following year, the climber survived with only minor injuries. However, on May 16, 2018, she finally reached the top, making it her second 8,000m peak.
