Harshvardhan Joshi, a 25-year-old from Vasai of Maharashtra has climbed the Mount (Mt.) Everest and reached the summit in his very first attempt. Harshvardhan made the climb just weeks after recovering from COVID-19.
He is a seasoned mountaineer who found his calling for mountaineering at the age of 18. An engineer by profession, Harshvardhan’s heart was always in mountain climbing. Harshvardhan continued to follow his dream of conquering Mt. Everest with a passion to succeed. His goal was clear and in order to achieve it, he followed a strict regime of endurance training for the last 6 months. As part of his preparation, he also spent more than 5 months every year in different states of the Indian Himalayas, training and scaling 11 summits in the process.
“With this attempt, I wish to empower youth with the message that no dream is unattainable if you have the right support system by your side and that passion & dedication can truly move mountains,” Harshvardhan Joshi said.
Seagram’s Royal Stag will showcase the momentous journey of the young mountaineer in its ‘Make it Large Stories’ series.
