Even experienced trekkers find the journey to Everest Base Camp (EBC) to be fairly difficult. One of the youngest Indians to accomplish the accomplishment, a seven-year-old Bengaluru girl overcame all obstacles to reach EBC recently.

Alongside her father, Harsha Bennur, Aadya trekked 65 kilometres through hazardous terrain in eight days, waving the Indian flag at 5,364 metres at EBC at 3:15 p.m. (Nepal time) on June 24.

Aadya Bennur, a third-grader at a Jakkur school, was motivated by the lockdown period. Aadya became a fitness enthusiast during her lockdown.

“We need just 5×5-ft space to do an entire workout. I was doing high intensity interval training within the house. Once the lockdown eased, we went cycling covering over 15+ km a day. I also learnt lawn tennis since that was the only sport we could play while maintaining social distance,” Aadya told reporters.

Managing Director of Marketing at an MNC, Harsha Bennur, said,”EBC was planned less than a month before we left for Nepal. She was already in top shape for a seven-year-old, so we were able to get her there.”

Aadya is dedicated to preserving the environment. She kept the mountain clean by picking up trash every day along her trail.

Her father said that she is currently celebrating after successfully making it to Everest Base Camp. “We are considering more challenging treks in the Himalayas next year. We are considering Island Peak for her next peak. This involves technical climbing and is not a regular trek,” he said.
