“It was a rainy day. I was a little scared, my legs hurt, I stopped to rest halfway, but then I got to the top,” Samanyu told Pothuraju. - I like it when there is a lot of snow. So I decided to go to Mount Kilimanjaro.” 

The boy was accompanied on his way up the mountain by his mother, as well as by a coach and another climber. Now Samanyu Pothuradju intends to go to Australia to climb the highest peak of this continent, Mount Kosciuszko.
