Jay Kolhatkar Scales Mt. Everest!

GGIM student Jay Kolhatkar reaches the summit of Mt. Everest on 12th May 2022 at 6:00 AM in the morning. Jay, a talented rock climber and an ardent mountaineer, who had been dreaming for this very goal for quite sometime, has finally materialised. 

Jay’s journey in GGIM began with GGIM’s first ever Basic Rock Climbing Course, where in he secured ‘Best Trainee’ Award. Further he honed his rock craft and mountian climbing skills and climbed Mt. Elbrus and Mt. Mera with GGIM.

He trained well for nearly two years and was guided by Giripremi’s senior mountaineers and Everest summitters. 

It is indeed a proud moment for GGIM to see fourth student after Venkatesh Maheshwari, Rahul Inamdar, Jitendra Gaware to scale Mt. Everest!

We wish him heart congratulations for his memorable bid and a safe descend back to base camp.
