Yano’s journey from the cricket pitch in the hilly terrain of Itanagar to the pinnacle of the Earth is a testament to her indomitable spirit and unwavering determination. Originally from Kabak village in Kamle district of Arunachal, Yano’s humble origins did not deter her from pursuing her dreams. Despite losing her father at a young age and facing financial hardships, she kept her eyes on the goal.

“It will be a privilege for me to represent Arunachal Pradesh as an example of women empowerment,” Yano had said before embarking on the Everest mission.

Yano’s journey to the top of the world was fraught with challenges. Raising the estimated Rs 30 lakh required for the expedition was a daunting task. However, well-wishers rallied behind her, initiating financial resource mobilization.

Everester Tagit Sorang played a pivotal role in mentoring and providing initial training to Yano, helping her transition from a cricketer to a mountaineer. “While her physical fitness on the cricket field was an asset, the technical aspects and skills required to scale Mt Everest demanded a different level of mental fortitude,” Tagit told .

Before her Everest triumph, she successfully scaled Mt UT Kangri, which stands at an altitude of 6,080 meters and came close to conquering Mt Nun, which stands at an elevation of 7,135 meters.  Both the mountains are located in Ladakh.
