I have been into adventure for 35 years; Currently, I'm Vice President of the Indian Mountaineering Foundation.It was during my first year in college, in 1980, that I became interested in climbing. We did a number of new routes in the rocks at Susunia and Joychandi in Purulia District. Later I led my first expedition to a group of peaks called Jogin I,II and III, all of them between 20,000ft and 21,500ft. The second peak was a virgin peak, of which we made the first ascent. I've been part of 14 major Himalayan expeditions, and all of them have been memorable in one way or the other. Kamet, because we had to do a rescue from both the West Ridge and the traditional route, Sudarshan Parbat is a great climb, I attempted Satopanth peak twice on one occasion single handed opening the route to the North Col. I also had the chance to climb outside the Himalaya, Elbrus (Russian Caucasus) and Kilimanjaro (Tanzania), more recently (2015) the Cosmiques Traverse on Aiguille Du Midi, but of course nothing beats the Himalayan challenge.I am also a sky diver, and have pioneered paragliding training in India, as Principal of the Gulmarg Ski School, way back in 1992. Besides, I also owned and operated a hot-air ballooning company in Sri Lanka for a couple of years. I think climbing and outdoors can enrich your life like nothing else.
