SHELTON — Saina Dalvi’s dream of climbing Mount Everest began when she was 8. Five years later, the dream became real.
Last month, the 13-year-old Shelton Intermediate School student made the trek — alongside her mother, Pallavi Raje-Dalvi, and two friends — some 18,000 feet above sea level to Mt. Everest Base Camp. Located along the border of Nepal and Tibet, Mt. Everest, at just over 29,000 feet, is the world’s highest mountain and part of the Nepalese Himalayas.
