Aarohan Wanderlust announces Mountaineering Expeditions to Mt Everest and Mt Lhotse starts on Apr 20

Kolkata, Apr 17 (UNI) Aarohan Wanderlust, the Adventure wing of most renowned Aarohan Trust today announced the Mountaineering Expeditions to Mt Everest (8848 metres) and Mt. Lhotse (8415 metres - the fourth highest peak in the world).
The expedition is scheduled to start from Kolkata Airport on April 20 at 1350 hours to Kathmandu, Nepal and then to Lukla on April 21 taking the South side route of Everest. The team is expected to reach the base camp on April 24. From the base camp it will take around a month to reach the Everest and Lhotse summit depending on the weather.
Two experienced climbers from Bengal, Kuntal Kanrar and Md. Sahabuddin will try to climb the Everest on this expedition. It's a diverse team in terms of combined mountaineering expertise.
The team is mentored by India's ace mountaineer Debasish Biswas.
He is the Arjun Awardee in Mountaineering (Tenzing Norgey National Adventure Award) & Gold Medal winner from Indian Mountaineering Foundation, the highest award in mountaineering in India and the only Civilian Indian to have climbed 5 Eight thousander peak - Everest, Kanchenjunga, Annapurna, Makalu and Manaslu.
Biswas will attempt Mt. Lhotse and will climb with the team as Everest and Lhotse has the same climbing route till camp 3.
In 2016 also, Debasish had tried to climb Lhotse, but when he reached in Camp-4, one Sherpa fell and died there and the expedition was cancelled. Biswas was forced to return back.
In the same time 3 climbers from Bengal died at Everest Expedition and since Everest and Lhotse are two adjacent peaks, Debasish joined in the rescue operation. That time he could rescue only the body of Subhas Paul. The bodies of other two, Goutam Ghosh and Paresh Nath are lying at the height of near and above 8000 mt. This year he will try to rescue their bodies besides his climbing.
Aarohan also announced the expedition to Carstenstz Pyramid at Papua New Guinea on May 8 which is the highest mountain in Oceania and is one of the 7 summits.
Satyarup Siddhanta who has climbed Mt Everest last year from Bengal is in his pursuit to climb the highest mountain of each continent. This will be his 6th of the 7 summit.
