With the Cho Oyu summit, Arjun has climbed five mountains that tower over 8000 meters above the sea level. There are 14 highest in the world are over 8000 metres and all these mountains are located in the Karakoram and Himalayan mountain ranges.

Besides, Arjun also holds the world records as the youngest summiteer on Mount Lhotse, Mount Manaslu and Mount Makalu. He is also the third youngest Indian to scale the Mount Everest. He scaled the highest mountain of the world in 2010 at the age of 16 years, 11 months and 18 days.
