THOUGHT LEADERSHIP

Captain Kohli

Patron

Capt. Kohli was the leader of India’s first successful Everest expedition in 1965 where 9 climbers reached the summit. In the same year he led the CIA sponsored Nanda Devi expedition to plant a nuclear-powered sensor on the summit to peek into China.

 

In 1971 Capt. Kohli joined Air India and introduced trekking in the Himalayas right around the world. Later in 1989 to stop the environmental degradation in the Himalayas, Capt. Kohli founded the Himalayan Environment Trust.

 

Capt. Kohli is a recipient of several national and international honours including India's Padma Bhushan and the Arjuna Award. He enjoyed the rare privilege of addressing members of both Houses of the Indian Parliament and has so far authored 30 books.

"

The record of Commander Kohli's expedition will find special mention in history. It was a masterpiece of planning, organization, teamwork, individual effort and leadership. The successful Indian Everest climb in 1965, the military victory in 1971, the peaceful nuclear experiment at Pokhran, the achievement of self-sufficiency in food, the launching of Aryabhata, Bhaskra and Rohini and this last with our own rocket-each one of these has added to our prestige as a nation and to the self confidence of our people.

Maninder Kohli

"

There is no better way to deal with the stress of modern corporate life than by spending time outdoors on an adventure. By overcoming challenges we become ‘comfortable in being uncomfortable’, a state of mind which we can carry away from the trek to both our professional and personal lives.

"

The Himalayan Environment Trust and its supporters aim to encourage and educate the trekkers into a sense of responsibility to the Himalayan environment, to leave these beautiful areas as they found them - or maybe better! And to build a fierce sense of responsibility that these magnificent mountains belong to the world in general and must be protected for generations to come.
