Mumbai, May 17 -- Huma Qureshi, who has long-harboured a dream of going mountaineering, found the time for it after the release of her last film, Badlapur.
The actor and a couple of friends went to Malaysia, where they scaled Mount Kinabalu earlier this month. "It's the highest peak in South East Asia, and we climbed 4,095.2 m. I had never done mountaineering, so it was intense. Going up and looking around from there was an amazing experience," says Huma, who didn't have to undergo any training before the climb.
She adds, "But you have to be physically fit, so we practised for it a couple of weeks prior to the ascent."
Describing her mountaineering experience, Huma recalls that the first day was quite crazy, as they climbed for six hours.
"We reached midway in the evening, had dinner early and passed out. We woke up around 2 am and started climbing again at 3 am. The idea was to reach the summit before sunrise," she says. The actor adds that she would love to return for a similar experience, but she is unsure about when she can find time to do so.
