Savita Kanswal came from a humble background & made headlines with her grit, determination & passion. She had climbed Everest recently; & spoke to me two to three times. Savita passed away in yesterday’s avalanche in #Uttarkashi #Uttarakhand. May you be at peace Savita 🙏🙏 🙏 pic.twitter.com/6lDWgOLIij

Saddened by the demice of ace #mountaineer Savita Kanswal owing to #Avalanche at Draupadi Ka Danda in the Garhwal #Himalayas I had a chance to interact with Savita after she scaled Mount Everest this year.

Who is Savita Kanswal?
She was the first woman who achieved that distinction. She belonged to Lonthru village of Uttarkashi district in Uttarakhand. She lived with his poor family and to support her training at NIM, she also worked odd jobs. She was appointed as an instructor at the same institute in 2016. Her death news is a big loss to the mountaineering community of the country.
It is saddening that we have lost precious lives of those associated with a NIM Uttarkashi mountaineering expedition. Condolences to the bereaved families. Rescue operations are underway and the situation is being closely monitored by the authorities: PM @narendramodi
