He became the only Indian with a double amputee to conquer three major peaks of different continents. After conquering Mount Elbrus, he gave the message of ‘Mission Inclusion–To promote equality’ and Plastic Free Nation from the mountain. Earlier, Chitrasen Sahu had set a national record by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Koziasco. Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest peak in the continent of Africa and Mount Kosciuszko is the highest Australia.
