Earlier, netizens showered a lot of love watching a 55-year-old mountaineer Commandant Ratan Singh Sonal doing 65 push-ups at one-go at 17,500 feet at -30 degrees Celsius temperature in Ladakh. The ITBP central mountaineering team had then completed its first-ever ascent to Mount Karzok Kangri. Notably, the team reached great height without using any special mountaineering equipment and support system.
