Defence PRO becomes first woman to reach Agasthyarkoodam peak

Dhanya Sanal is the 1st woman to trek to Agasthyarkoodam after 2018 Kerala High Court order that women can't be excluded from trekking the peak.
At least 100 women had signed up for the 47-day trekking season, which will continue until March 1.

Agasthyarkoodam is considered final resting place of sage Agasthya, who is an eternal celibate.
