In a remarkable display of courage and determination, 35-year-old Uday Kumar, who has a 91% physical disability above the knee, successfully reached the summit of Mount Rhenock in Sikkim.

This extraordinary accomplishment has left a mark on the world of mountaineering, as Kumar conquered the challenging peak situated at an elevation of 16,500 feet in the Kanchenjunga National Park of West Sikkim.

The expedition was meticulously organized by the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute (HMI) in Darjeeling, showcasing the institute's commitment to promoting adventure and overcoming physical barriers.

Accompanied by a team from HMI, Kumar commenced his ascent on March 5, culminating in his triumphant arrival at the summit on March 18. Enduring slopes and navigating through unpredictable weather conditions, Kumar's unwavering determination propelled him toward the fulfillment of his ambitious goal.

A historic moment ensued as Kumar became the first amputee to hoist the largest Indian flag, spanning an impressive 780 square feet, atop Mount Rhenock. This symbolic gesture epitomized Kumar's resilience and served as a testament to his extraordinary courage and perseverance.

Expressing his gratitude towards the HMI team and group captain Jai Kishan, Kumar acknowledged their invaluable support and guidance throughout the expedition. "This was possible only because of group captain Jai Kishan and the team of HMI," he remarked, underscoring the pivotal role played by his mentors in his remarkable journey.

Despite facing numerous challenges, including the impact of the Covid pandemic on his morale, Kumar remained undeterred in his pursuit of excellence. Encouraged and motivated by his mentors, Kumar drew strength from their unwavering support and invaluable lessons imparted during his training at HMI.

Looking ahead, Kumar expressed his aspirations to embark on further mountaineering expeditions and conquer even greater heights. "Mount Rhenock is just the beginning, there's still a lot left to do," he added.
