Saurabh is into mountaineering and trekking since 2007, when
he was 16 years old. Since then he has summited many peaks.
His first expedition and summit was Mentok Kangri (6150 m) in
2014, he had gone there as a sherpa to help fix the ropes.
After this, he summited Gangotri-III which also had a great deal
of learning, he recalls a complete white out during that
expedition in which they lost a team member and then spent quiet
some time finding him. Finally in 2014, he also summited Stok
Kangri (6153 m) two times.
In 2015, Saurabh then summited Bhagirathi-II (6856 m), three time
consecutively between July to October.
In 2016, He Summited Rudraigaira in May. His attempt to summit
Kedar Dome (
6940 m) failed by 400 meters in June. He says - "There are lots of
crevases in Kedar Dome. In the morning the crevases are hard and
we can get past them, but while returning back it could get risky"
In 2017, his plan is to do 7000+ meter new peaks.
Saurabh says - "I like to mountaineer … I love the
feeling we get when we summit. It comes from inside."
