    Indian mountaineer Reena Kaushal Dharmshaktu has became the first Indian woman to ski to the South Pole, media reports said on Friday.

    Dharmshaktu (38) was part of the eight-membered Commonwealth Women's Antarctic Expedition team.

    According to reports, all the eight women skied around 10 hours a day for 3 days and covered 915 km to reach the bottom of the earth (South Pole) on Thursday.

    "I'm incredibly proud of the team and I think ... if we can do this then you can do anything that you like to and that's the message that we really want to send to everyone," team leader Felicity Aston said in a message from South Pole, as reported by Fox News.

    The team reportedly braved temperatures 40 degree Celsius below zero, blizzrds and blowing at over 130 kmph during their Antarctic ski trek.

    "It's a big achievement and we are all so excited about it. We all are proud of her," Dharmshaktu's mountaineer husband, Love Raj Singh, told reporters Friday.

    Love Raj Singh had conquered Mount Everest for the third time in May, 2009.

    The expedition marked the 60th foundation anniversary of the Commonwealth.
