7-YO Virat Chandra Scales Mt Kilimanjaro


New Delhi: Virat Chandra, a seven-year-old boy from Hyderabad, has made the country proud as he scaled world’s largest free-standing mountain and Africa’s tallest mountain—Kilimanjaro.

The 7-year-old said he was inspired to climb after listening to the inspiring stories of the experiences of his cousins.

“I was scared but all I wanted was to reach my goal,” says Virat Chandra.

Virat’s coach Bharath told that he decided to take Virat for mountaineering after a month-long rigorous training. “Virat has that passion in him. He was very excited to train. Unlike many who quit midway through the training,” says Bharath.
