India’s Geeta Samota has climbed atop Mount Kosciuszko ( 2,228 mts), Australian continent’s highest peak on International Women’s Day.
Mount Kosciuszko is located in Kosciuszko National Park on the Main Range of the Snowy Mountains. It is part of the Australian Alps National Parks and Reserves in New South Wales.
Congratulating Geeta, India’s High Commissioner to Australia Mr Manpreet Vohra tweeted:
Geeta is a Sub Inspector in Central Industrial Security Force (CISF). She joined CISF in 2012.
Earlier, in September 2021, Geeta had became the “fastest Indian” to summit two peaks located in Africa and Russia.
She had scaled Mount Elbrus (5,642 mts) in Russia and the Kilimanjaro peak (5,895 mts) that is located in Tanzania and is Africa’s highest peak.
