Body Of Odia Mountaineer Kalpana Dash Reaches Bhubaneswar

Bhubaneswar: The mortal remains of Odia mountaineer Kalpana Dash reached here this morning. Her body will be kept at Kalinga Stadium for around one hour for the general public to pay last respects.

Earlier, Dash’s body was scheduled to reach here at around 9 pm last night. However, the flight from Kathmandu carrying the mortal remains of Dash was delayed and thus the connecting flight from Delhi to Bhubaneswar was missed.

The body was handed over to a three-member team from Odisha, which includes Kalpana’s brother Pradip Dash after completion of necessary paper-work in Kathmandu.

Noteworthy, the 52-year-old mountaineer passed away at the Everest Balcony area on May 23 while descending from the summit.

Dash, who had left for Everest on April 23, had complained breathlessness while descending from the peak.

The mountaineer had first scaled Mt Everest in 2008. In her illustrious career, she had trekked many mountains conquering peaks in Europe, America and Australia, besides India.
