Mountaineer Jathin Sha of Visakhapatnam crossed another milestone by scaling Deo Tibba, a 6,001-meter-high peak of the Pir Panjal range in Kullu valley of Himachal Pradesh, on Friday. Deo Tibba is the second-largest peak in the valley.
According to his father Vikram Sha, a resident of Seethammadhara, all the mountains scaled so far by his son are over 6,000 meters in height and scaling the Deo Tibba is a challenging feat. Undeterred by hailstorms and heavy snowfall, the mountaineer from Visakhapatnam, Jathin Sha, successfully achieved the rare feat of conquering Deo Tibba in Kullu Valley, said his father proudly.
