Indian mountaineer and a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) officer Geeta Samota has scaled the highest peak of the Australian Continent.
Geeta Samota has climbed Mount Kosciuszko, the highest mountain on the Australian Continent.
“Any girl is stronger than the mountain she chooses to climb. More power to all the Super Women who are putting in everything to fulfil their duties,” Samota tweeted after achieving this feat.
A Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) officer Geeta Samota has scaled many other mountains globally, including Mount Elbrus in Russia, the highest peak in Europe, which she climbed last year.
Thirty Two-year-old Samota joined CISF in 2011. She has scaled Mt Satopanth (7075 metres; located in Uttarakhand) and Mt Lobuche (in Nepal) along with many other peaks in the Himalayas.
Indian High Commissioner in Australia Manpreet Vohra congratulated Samota on this achievement.
“My congratulations to Geeta Samota of India on achieving this feat in Australia. She has scaled the highest peaks of many other continents! I met her last week in Canberra. Confident that she will Summit Mt. Everest soon! Her parent organisation CISF must be so proud,” Vohra tweeted.
Mount Kosciuszko is mainland Australia’s tallest mountain. Located on the Main Range of the Snowy Mountains in Kosciuszko National Park, this 2,228-metre-tall peak is a part of the Australian Alps National Parks and Reserves in New South Wales, Australia. It is located west of Crackenback and close to Jindabyne.
