A woman deputy superintendent of police from the state, G.R. Radhika, achieved a rare feat of climbing 5,980m Golep Kangri peak, located in the Zanskar Range, in western Himalayas, near the Karakorams.
Boosted by this success Radhika is aiming to scale a few more peaks of 20,000 plus feet, before the end of this year.
Radhika is an English lecturer-turned cop who is known for physical fitness and endurance.
Radhika who is now working in Police Training College at Anantapur said, “I went on foot on the Kailash Manosarovar Yatra from India to China and back. This really inspired and gave me confidence.
Later I trained in mountaineering after which we went for an expedition to Golep Kangri peak. It’s highly risky but I could make it. I am happy that I am going for more summits before I fulfill my ambition of climbing Mount Everest. My family and the police department have been extremely supportive.”
