A seven-year-old boy, Samanyu Pothuraju from Hyderabad unfurled the national flag at Uhuru peak of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, the highest peak in Africa.
He scaled a height of 5,895 metres above sea level along with his coach on April 2. His mother Lavanya, coach Thamineni Bharath, a fellow mountaineer Shangabandi Srujana and another woman accompanied him. A local Tanzania doctor was also with them.
Speaking with ANI, Samanyu said, “It was a rainy day and the road was full of stones. I was afraid and had pain in my legs, but I took rest in between and reached the peak. I like snow a lot and that is the reason I went to Mt Kilimanjaro.”
He added, “I will go to Australia peak next month to make a record.”
His mother said, “I am really very happy as my son tried to achieve a world record. Our next target is Australia, 10 peaks in May end and that will also be the record for my son.”
