Journey of Tsang Yin Hung
Tsang Yin Hung was so exultant to fulfill her dream after surviving the earthquake on Everest. After climbing Mt Everest she was fascinated with the mountains and again summited Mt Everest on May 22, 2019.
In between 2011-2019, she has climbed 5000 to 6000-m peaks more than 20 times.
She feels that mountains give energizing and positive thoughts along with keeping a person humble and blissful. “People used to say you are so strong, but I never thought I am so strong,” she said, “Mountains are so strong”.
In her opinion, one cannot battle and challenge the mountains. The only thing one has to take care of is ensuring that in the mountains, the natural phenomenon should be favorable to the climber.
