Giving account of her expedition, Anita said that Carstensz pyramid mountain peak carried challenge and technically it was risky also. Due to insufficient Oxygen in the air, there is always a risk of life.There were 10 climbers from USA, Britain, France, Germany and some other countries besides me. But only three of us could complete the climb to reach at the top of the Pyramid of Carstensz.
Anita took this expedition lightly. But it was really difficult and dangerous mission. She did not had all necessary implements with her. At one stage she had only ropes between two mountains and beneath was thousands of feet of fall. There was gushing winds. Despite all these odds she was succeesful in her mission.

Anita Kundu is just like a daughter to me.”
Talking Exclusive to Ten News about her next Seven Summit Expedition, Anita said, “In April I will go to Australia to get at the top of mountain there”.
Sharing experience about her Expedition, she said, “There are oil and gold mines in Indonesia. There is always possibility of volcano erupting in this region. Due to intermittent rains in the hills climbing mountain there is difficult as rocks get slippery. My helpers were afflicted with Malaria due to large presence of mosquitoes.
