Maloo had a near-death experience in April this year during the same climb. He fell down a 70-metre-deep crevasse, sustaining major injuries.

Rushed to the hospital after a complex rescue, Maloo spent 200 days at AIIMS Delhi. He was treated for organ damage and two frostbites.

Maloo does not recollect much from his rescue, he told Indian Express. ‘Doctors gave me CPR for 4 hours before shifting me to Kathmandu,’ he said.

Calling Annapurna the ‘mother mountain,’ the 34-year-old wishes to re-attempt the difficult 21-day climb.

Mount Annapurna in Nepal has an altitude of 8,091 meters, making it the 10th highest peak in the world.
