Woman becomes youngest to conquer Mount Everest twice

A 21-year-old Australian woman, who became the youngest to conquer Mount Everest twice, has revealed what she plans on doing next.

Alyssa Azar, from Queensland, has arrived home but is already planning her next adventure.

Ms Azar arrived at base camp in mid-April and battled -60C close to the peak.

“Once you get up onto that ridgeline, any of the winds and the weather just hits you at full force,” she said.

On May 19, the 21-year-old made it to the highest point in the world. It came two years after she became the youngest person at 19-years-old to climb Mount Everest. 

She’s already itching for her next trip.

“Every time I go on an expedition, you grow so much in that two-month period and that process certainly becomes a bit addictive,” Ms Azar said.

Her father, Glenn, said his daughter had always had the ability to do whatever she puts her mind to even if she had to go it alone.

The 21-year-old will recommence training immediately.

Ms Azar next plans to guide a trek up Mount Kilimanjaro in 2019 and she’s made it her mission to conquer seven summits across all seven continents.
