Rhythm Mamania, a 10-year-old skater from Mumbai, has become one of the youngest Indian mountaineers to reach Everest base camp, a trek she completed in 11 days.

Harshal and Urmi, her parents, joined her on the trek earlier this month."Rhythm, a Class 5 student from MET Rishikul Vidyalaya in suburban Bandra, arrived at Everest base camp around 1 p.m. on May 6," her mother Urmi said.

Took 11 days to scale 5,364 metres

The base camp is located at 5,364 metres, and she said the expedition took her 11 days to complete."Skating ring or base camp summit, it's the determination that gets you a long way," Rhythm, a Worli resident, said.

"Along with skating, trekking has always been a passion of mine," she continued, "but this trek taught me how important it is to be a responsible trekker while also solving the mountain waste management problem."

Rhythm has been scaling mountains since she was five years old, according to her mother, and her first long trek was the 21-kilometer Dudhsagar. Since then, she has climbed a few peaks in the Sahyadri 
ranges, including Mahuli, Sondai, Karnala, and Lohagad.

Rhythm walked for 8-9 hours at various steep terrain in varying climatic conditions, including hailstones and snowfall, and temperatures as low as minus 10 degrees Celsius, during the base camp trek, she added.The girl had trekked to the base camp with a group of Kutch trekkers from 'Satori Adventures,' a Nepal-based company.

Other members of the group decided to take the helicopter back to base camp after arriving, but Rhythm insisted on walking down. As a result, four of us made the decision to descend it," Urmi explained.
