Kilimanjaro (5895 M) with her husband. Two years later, Bahl climbed Mt. Elbrus (5642 M), Europe’s highest peak before becoming the third Indian woman climber to climb Mt.

During Bahl's previous attempt to climb everest in 2017 she narrowly missed out on conquering the highest peak in the world, standing at 29,035 feet previous year due to altitude sickness. She was with six other climbers who suffered from high-altitude sickness and had to be evacuated[10].
