Bandung - A member of the Seven Summits Expedition Team Mahitala Unpar (ISSEMU), Janathan Ginting, has succeeded in reaching the Aconcagua Peak (6,962 maters) in Argentina, an ISSEMEU spokesperson , Widyastuti, said here Tuesday.

Janathan reached the highest peak in South America on Sunday (30 Jan) at 12.00 local time in his second attempt to conquer the mountain, Widyastuti said.

"Janathan reached the top so the whole ISSEMU team successfully completed the climb of the fifth highest mountain in the world," Widyastuti said.

Previously, the ISSEMU team consisting of Sofyan Arief Fasa, Broery Andrew, Frank and Max Agung managed to reach the same peak on January 9, 2011.

Janathan in his first ascent was held up at Plaza Argentina because of a health problem. The local doctors` team required Janathan to take a rest and therefore he did not participate in the climb with the team.

After taking a rest, he was eligible for the climb. Together with eight other climbers from Britain, Canada, the United States, India, Scotland as well as three guides from Peru and Argentina, Janathan finally reached the top where the Indonesian flag was raised by the first ISSEMEU team, Widyastuti said.

"At this time Jonathan is making his descent from the top and will immediately make preparations to return home," she added.

Previously, the ISSEMU team had successfully conquered the highest peak of Carteenz Pyramid (Indonesia), Kilimanjaro (Africa), Elbrus (Europe) and Vinson Massif (Antarctica).

While the other two highest peaks which will be climbed are the highest peak in Asia, namely Mount Everest(Nepal) and Denali (Alaska).

"The sixth climbg at the end of March 2011 will be on Mt Everest. Janathan will also participate, so that the team remains complete," Widyastuti said.

The ISSEMU team is the first from Indonesia to have scaled the Vinson Massif, the highest peak in Antarctica.
