Telangana teen scales Mt. Kilimanjaro

ANI  |  Hyderabad (Telangana) [India] 

Nineteen-year-old mountaineer Amgoth from Telangana has achieved a milestone by Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest point and tallest free-standing mountain in the world that stands at an imposing 5,895m.

His zeal to climb was meant to create awareness of benefits of wearing helmets, said.

"My motive was to create awareness among people that they should wear helmets while driving. I was moved when I saw a road accident live and I felt extremely bad. So I thought of taking the awareness campaign forward by Mount Kilimanjaro," he told ANI.

claimed that he has also broken the record by carrying a 18-metre-long tricolour to the peak.
