He also said Harshit climbed the nearby Kalapathar peak, which is at a height of 5,550 metres. The peak is higher than the highest peaks of three continents - Mount Blank (4,810 m) in Europe, Vison Massif (4,810 m) in Antarctica, and Punack Jaya (4,884 m) in Australia.
Rajeev Saumitra said Harshit was felicitated with the Nepal Bharat Friendship Society on his feat. An upbeat Rajeev Saumitra announced he would set up a Harshit Foundation to lend a helping hand to the less privileged and children from weaker sections of society. “The foundation’s thrust would be to support and help poorest of the poor students for education, health and sports,” he said.
