Kuntal Joisher

The first Indian Vegan Mountaineer, a Humanitarian and an Inspiring Visionary


The first Indian vegan mountaineer, hailing from Mumbai, Kuntal Joisher  a passionate climber, is adventurous, dauntless and a risk-taker. His expeditions to some of the world’s most dangerous mountains are fiercely driven by a profound personal mission as a vegan champion, dementia awareness advocate and a humanitarian inspiration.

He broke the internet when he climbed Mount Everest in 2016. The world had known of many climbers summiting the world's highest mountain, but never had witnessed a vegan successfully climbing it before.

He has pushed many boundaries with some amazing climbs on a completely plant-based diet. In 2018, he conquered Mt Lhotse, the fourth highest mountain in the world, & became the first human in the world to have ascended any 8000 meter mountain on a 100% vegan lifestyle.

During the course of the expedition, Kuntal only consumed vegan food, & used only vegan gear including a one-piece synthetic suit & gloves made completely from animal-free material. 

In his talk, he takes his audience on a visual journey to the very top of the world while delving into his innermost fears & how he overcame them.
