Kodagu lass ascends Mount Elbrus of Russia

Mountaineer Bhavani waves the Indian national flag at the peak of Mount Elbrus in Russia.

A young woman from Kodagu has grabbed the attention of the world by scaling the highest mountain in Russia, Mount Elbrus.

Bhavani, daughter of Tekkada Nanjunda-Parvathi couple from Peruru village, is the wonderwoman who scaled the high mountain (standing at 5,642 metre).

Bhavani was part of a four-member mountaineers’ team which carried out an expedition to Mount Elbrus.

Being the only Indian in the team, she climbed the mountain without taking rest for a continuous eight hours.

The second person to reach the Mount Elbrus summit, Bhavani waved and pitched the Indian tricolour on the mountain summit.

Bhavani is presently serving as a lecturer at the Mountaineering Institute in Himalaya.

Her parents said Bhavani is also equally well versed in swimming, horse-riding and martial arts.
