“Somewhere between the bottom of the climb and the summit is the answer to the mystery why we climb.” – Greg Child

Every mountain I have climbed, I have walked away with something so much valuable: a sense of strength, accomplishment, inspiration and confidence!!

Back in India while growing up I didn’t have any foundation of an outdoor.  I started hiking for stress relief. Getting into nature offered me a way to find silence and clarity and it is the best remedy to unclog the mind of unnecessary and focus on bigger picture. There is no greater feeling than hiking a mountain and making it to the top. The rewards were so great that I decided to make this a bigger goal and put my energy and resources into something more meaningfully. Here I am, talking about one of my biggest commitment of year 2020. I am climbing Kilimanjaro to support Asha for Education. I know it is most challenging journey to the summit and I have never hiked this high before but I am sure I will get to the top of this and come out stronger, a better version of myself.

True that “He who climbs upon the highest mountains laughs at all tragedies, real or imaginary”
