BASIC MOUNTAINEERING COURSE

Since the last 3yrs of my life where I have been addicted to hiking, trekking and adventure activities.  Starting from the scratch being a mountaineer was just a dream for the next 10yrs. This passion for adventure activities, have led me to greater heights of life reaching higher summits in different countries and continents.

Some of my achievements are climbing the highest peak & tough mountains of each country:

Seven Summits

Kilimanjaro(5849m) – Africa

Elbrus (5642m)

Nepal

First Peak Climbing - 6470m

Everest Base Camp

Annapurana Base Camp

Malaysia

Highest peak -Kota Kinabalu

Gunung Tahan,YongBelar, - G7 mountains

Volcanoes around Indonesia

 Kerinci

Rinjani

Semeru

Highest of IndoChina

Fanispan

India

First 6000m – STOK KANGRI

Zansar – The Frozen River

Reaching greater heights needed technical skills and experience. So I have been looking around for some mountaineering course around the world which can help me learn new skills and technical knowledge on how to use the mountaineering equipments and climb higher. It was a tough choice either the cost of the course or the duration of the course to get certified as a mountaineer. Finally after much research and comparing prices I looked into Indian Mountaineering schools, some of the top schools NIM & HMI the waiting list time was like 2-3yrs. So there was no chance to get in the course and even the Basic Mountaineering Course was 28days in duration.

A friend of mine from INDIA named Mangesh Koyande who runs Adventure India Company managed to get some slots for BMC at JIM&WS for September2016 Course. I was very excited and immediately booked a seat and got confirmation. Then decided to quit my full time job of Engineering which I was been in the same company for last 8yrs and followed my DREAMS & PASSION to be a mountaineer.

Not sure during that time if my decision was right, but now after 8months of being jobless I never regret that decision I made which changed my life for now.
