Why I love Mountaineering?

I don’t know why, I love mountaineering since childhood and used to climb high mountain peaks around village located in the valley of Lungnak (Zanskar). Came to Leh at the age of 12 and chose tourism line and worked as helper in the beginning and later on guide for several years. And in the year 1984 selected in Indian army, during my service of 19 years in Indian Army, I got an opportunity to gain training in Skiing and mountaineering from (HAWS) Gulmarg Kashmir, Kargil Battle school and Siachen battle School. And got chance to represent Indian army team in skiing event in the winter game championship (national level) and one time represent India in 4th Asian winter game events held at kongman Korea. But unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to summit peak during present at the institute for 12 years. To fulfill the dream of conquering high peaks I retired voluntary from the service and started getting on to different peaks of Ladakh. Till now I have summit almost 11 peaks throughout the region and highest of 6380 M. I think its worth here to mention that I am first local person who did ski touring in the Zanskar region in the year 2016, and found Drangdrung and Akshow glaciers for ski touring.

Below are the lists of peak that I have conquered till now.

  • Stok Kangri many times even in winter also alpine type when temperature goes down to -35 to 40.
  • Goleb Kangri stok (5900)
  • Kang Yatse 2 Marka, (6139 M)
  • Mentok Kangri 1 Korzok (6250)
  • Mentok Kangri 2 Korzok (6230)
  • Khadey peak Tsomoriri (6080 M)
  • Meyshal peak Tsomoriri (6185 M)
  • Spagnak kagri Tsomoriri (6380)
  • Dong Ringmo peak Zanskar. (5900 M)
  • Chopdol 1 Tsomoriri (6252 M)
  • Chopdol 2 Tsomoriri (6225M)

Every year I go on expedition for survey one/two peak throughout Ladakh and try to bring clear information of the peaks and share with mountaineers who want to get information about route and peak. Right now I am 54 years of age still conquering peaks. “Nothing is impossible for willing heart” just get courage, be positive and fulfill dreams. “where there is a will there is a way”.
