A woman climber, B.Gangaamaa, who holds the title of Honorary Mountaineer of Mongolia, is planning to conquer Aconcagua, South America highest mountain next month. This is her second attempt to climb the 6962 meters high mountain. If she can reach the peak, she will become the 8th Mongolian, and the 4th Mongolian female mountaineer, who has done so.
In 2013, B.Gangaamaa and others tried to climb Aconcagua, but for various reasons had to return. One member of their team, D.Erdenetogtokh, however, continued and became the first Mongolian mountaineer to reach the summit.
This time, B.Gangaamaa will climb with a Hong-Kong mountaineer who represents the “North Face” clothing brand. They will ascend using the so-called “Polish Glacier Route”, which was discoveried in 1934 by Poland mountaineers.
Aconcagua is one of the world’s “Seven” highest peaks and is the highest mountain outside Asia. It is situated in the Andes in Argentina.
