Arjun Vajpai

Mountaineer | Explorer


At 16 years of age, Arjun became the 'Third Youngest Indian mountaineer' to scale Mt. Everest back in 2010. 

He underwent two years of training at Nehru Institute of Mountaineering and proved himself in 2010, by summiting the mighty Mt. Everest.

After the Mt. Everest feat,  he set his eyes on summiting the 14 highest peaks of the world, often referred to as 'The Grand Slam of Mountaineering'.  

Arjun soon became the youngest to summit Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Lhotse and Mt. Cho Oyu, proving the mantra 'Success comes in life when you refuse to give up'. 

Mt. Makalu was his biggest challenge, and every attempt made it seem impossible, but as per Arjun, "It always seems impossible until it's done".

In 2017, Arjun set his eyes on India's Highest Peak and third-highest worldwide, the treacherous Kangchenjunga. Unfortunately, he had to return due to bad weather conditions. He made his second attempt the following year and became the Youngest person in the world to scale six peaks over 8,000 metres.

Arjun plays state-level football and basketball and Taekwondo at the international level.
