May 17, 2018: On Wednesday, four tribal students, including a girl, from Maharashtra have successfully scaled Mount Everest, the world's highest mountain as stated by Finance Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar.


The students are namely Manisha Dhurve (18), Umakant Madavi (19) and Parmesh Aale (19) from Devada Ashram School and Kavidas Katmode (18) from Jeevti Ashram School.
As per reports, the four scaled the world’s highest mountain on wee hours of Wednesday. Kavidas Katemode and Umakant Madavi were the first to reach the summit at 3.25am, while Parmesh Aale and Manisha Dhurve followed them at 4.25am and 4.35am respectively. All four were expected to return to the base camp later May 16 evening.
The students were among ten from Ashramshalas (state-run residential schools for tribals) from Chandrapur district, selected for the Everest expedition as part of the Tribal Development department's 'Mission Shaurya 2018'.
Reportedly, team members Indu Kannake and Vikas Soyam will make an attempt to scale Mt Everest from Thursday onwards. Akshay Atram and Vikas Soyam, will attempt the feat later, depending on weather conditions and their fitness levels. Two team members Chhaya Atram and Akash Madavi opted out due to altitude sickness and returned to Chandrapur.
The team, with members aged between 18 and 21, had left on April 11 from Mumbai for the 60-day expedition.
The selection process had begun in July 2017 with a school-level screening of 60 students, out of which 45 were selected for the foundation training in Wardha.
After further short listing, 18 were selected for a mountaineering course at Darjeeling, and thirteen of them were sent for advanced training in Leh before selecting the final team.
