All About Harsh's संघर्ष

 The Man with a Mission.

Harshvardhan Joshi was born in Vasai, Maharashtra in 1995. Today, he is a Mountaineer who conquered the highest peak of the World in 2021, while promoting Solar Energy and Sustainable Development Goals by the United Nations, battling COVID-19 and enduring two cyclones on his way to the top. 

Harsh was introduced to trekking by his mentors* when he was just a teenager. He had an epiphany on his first trek, and knew that he would climb Everest one day.

He was on  the verge of starting his MBA in 2017 when he decided to take the other road and give his undivided focus and attention to Everest, and the rest is history.

Having successfully conquered his dream, Harsh is now working on his next goal,  which is to  go to one of the best universities in the World to learn business and sustainability while sharing lessons from his journey. He is on a mission to uplift the lives of remote communities in the Himalayas and other places through impact tourism and rural development
