Nisha celebrated her birthday (on October 4) while climbing the highest peak in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro. She has successfully summited the 5756m peak in Tanzania and raised the Nepali flag on top of it and has returned back to Moshi to share the her photos at the peak.
In a Facebook message, Nisha wrote, “FINALLY!!! I summited #Uhuru peak at 7 a.m. There was no one around, just me and this gentle soul Abayay. My flag, camera and banners were in a bag pack with a guide and he was nowhere to be seen. We waited for about 15 min freezing and suddenly two figures appeared from the mist. I instantly asked the lady to take a pic of mine there. She wonderfully agreed! So there she was and her guide taking my picture. I thanked her and left as quickly as I could…” In the long message Nisha talks about meeting fellow mountaineers and the being a proud Nepali. In another post, she has expressed her happiness and the feeling of being proud to be able to live her dreams.
After the summit Nisha says that her “knees are a lil’ wobbly.” She has thanked her parents and brother for the strength and motivation.
The following photo Nisha shared by telling that she is “Cooling off my sore feet!” after the climb in Moshi, Tanzania.
