Arunima Sinha

World's first female amputee to climb Mt. Everest


Dr Arunima Sinha is an Everest climber who, despite losing her leg in an accident, became the World's First female amputee to climb Mount Everest in 2013. Arunima didn't stop there; in January 2019, she also became the world's first woman amputee to summit Mount Vinson, the highest peak in Antarctica.

Arunima was a national level volleyball player who was pushed from a running train by robbers in 2011 while she was resisting them—resulting in one of her legs having to be amputated below the knee.

  1. Everest in Asia,
  2. Kilimanjaro in Africa, 
  3. Elbrus in Europe, 
  4. Kosciuszko, Australia, 
  5. Aconcagua in Argentina- the world's five highest peaks and

In 2014 she released a book, 'Born Again on the Mountains'
