Hi, I am a globetrotting thrill seeker and a die-hard adrenalin junkie. Life to me must be lived on and off the edge. At the age of 10 when I stepped on my first Himalayan Glacier and looked up awestruck at the peak I was about to attempt, I knew then that I was born to climb and the mountains of this world would become my home, my friends and family. Since then I have been climbing and exploring all the mountain ranges across the globe and beyond. Over the past 35 years, some of the things I have done include:

  • Climbed the highest peaks of all the 7 continents, including Mt Everest (seven summits)
  • Skied to the North and South Poles
  • Climbed the second highest peaks of 5 continents (I am one of the three people in the world to have done this)
  • Climbed more than 350 peaks worldwide
  • Walked the length of Africa from Tunisia to South Africa
  • Traversed the ancient Silk Route from Mongolia to Istanbul
  • Skied across the Greenland ice cap
  • Visited 146 countries and climbed to the highest spot of nearly all

Following my passion, I became the only person in the world to have successfully led expeditions to the three poles (Mt Everest, North and South Poles) and the first submariner in the world to do so as well. For 22 years I was a submariner in the Indian Navy and have now taken voluntary retirement to devote more time to my adventures. Whoever I am today I owe it to my mountains and I am here to share this immense bounty and world treasure with you all.
