Coorg Woman At Mount Everest Base Camp


A woman from Coorg has made history by reaching the Mount Everest Base Camp. Dr. Latha, a 57-yearold gynaecologist working in Bengaluru, participated in the trek to the Everest Kodagu woman at Mount Everest Base Camp Base Camp and successfully reached the first phase target of 18,514 feet.

Dr. Latha, a native of Badubanahalli near Alur Siddapura in Somwarpet Taluk, Coorg, has brought great honor to her region through this remarkable achievement. She is the daughter of the late Mallappa.

With a keen interest in sports and trekking, Dr. Latha had a deep desire to conquer Mount Everest. She underwent rigorous training for six months with a Nepal-based company, running up to 10 kilometers daily and climbing small mountains to build stamina.

Dr. Latha was selected to climb the world’s highest peak during the April 28 to May 11 schedule, where several teams from India were participating. Among them, there were eight individuals aged between 30 and 40.

“Every day, we used to climb 10 to 15 kilometres and then rest. Only three members from our team, including me, could reach that Base Camp,” she said.
