At the age of 35 years 262 days, Satyarup broke the record of Australia's Daniel Bull who did it aged 36 years 157 days.
Speaking to News18, Satyarup’s mother Gayatri said:
"It’s a proud moment for the entire country. I had a word with him before the mission and asked him not to take too much of risk."
Satyarup is a software engineer by profession and is based in Bengaluru. He holds the record of conquering several other summits like, Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa, Mt. Elbrus in Europe, Mt. Denali in Alaska and Mt. Monc Blanc in France.
Once an asthmatic kid, Satya could not even run 100 m without taking a puff from his inhaler. He not only fought asthma, but also dared to dream big.
