This is Satya... Satyarup Siddhanta Born in Kolkata...brought up in a place called Berhampore in West Bengal... Engineering from Sikkim ... Working in Bangalore for 8+years.
Used to go to trekking in and around Karnataka... then I took a call to hike the Everest Base camp and Kalapatthar... That changed my world. I fell in love with the mighty Everest. Never before I knew about Mallory, the 96 disaster, the stories of Everest, Ama Dablam , not even the exact height of Mt Everest :)
I took great interest in the mountains and I am glad I did.I learnt one thing ... its not Bravado but skills u should be equipped with if you have to reach to the top of the world. And I went to HMI, Darjeeling for the basic course. A great course with great exposure while in the Rathong glacier, and climbing the Renauk peak. A paradigm shift. HMI also taught to respect nature.
Then I have been to Mt Kilimanjaro Machame route (highest mountain in Africa), Mt Meru, Mt Elbrus (highest mountain in Europe). In October I am planning to climb the Frey peak in Sikkim. And in December end I am planning to reach to the top of Mt Aconcagua in Argentina...the highest mountain in South America.
Finally I need to do an advanced course from HMI before I plan out Denali the highest peak in North America.
A step by step approach of gaining height to know how my body reacts to high altitude and getting my body used to it. Like many mountaineers, I too have a dream of doing the 7 summits. With all your blessings and well wishes I am sure I will do it!
I did tasted failure while our attempt to climb Mt Jogin III, the mountain didn't allowed us to go ahead by posing huge crevasses ... niether we nor the Navy had the ladders to cross those crevasses and we had to come back. But that taught me a lesson too.
I am glad I joined this group and looking forward to learn from all of you and your experiences, passion and dreams.
