Tashi is 37 years old. She is the ninth mountaineer to have conquered Everest in the last three years from her institute. Their success is also important because there were reports of Corona infection reaching Everest’s basecamp two weeks ago. According to Tashi, this achievement among Corona means a lot to him. Other mountaineers from Arunachal who have reached the summit of Everest include Tapi Mra, Tyn Maina, Anshu Jamsenpa, Neela Lama, Kaldane Paljor, Tame Bagang, Kishan Tekseng and Tak Tamut.
