While the people in different parts of India and overseas would be busy in performing ‘Yoga’ on this International Yoga Day (on June 21), a young mountaineer from Chhattisgarh’s Korba district will be starting his expedition to climb 7077 meter high ‘Mount Kun’ on Himalayan ranges and perform Yoga asanas (postures) at different altitudes there.

“My aim is to climb seven summits in as many continents and perform Yoga at its peaks and different altitudes,” said the 27-year-old mountaineer Hemant Kumar Gadeshwar.

He will start his expedition to scale Mount Kun located under Zanskar Range, Kargil in Jammu and Kashmir, on the coming International Yoga Day. He had planned to perform different Asanas (postures) of Yoga at different altitudes of the mountain during his journey.

“The objective of performing Yoga at such highest peaks of summits is to spread awareness about benefits of Yoga,” said the determined Gadeshwar while talking to Asian News Service.

This is not for the first time when Gadeshwar will be executing his unique idea during the expedition but recently also he had performed Yoga asanas at various levels while climbing 5895 meter high (Uhuru peak) Kilimanjaro mountain in South Africa.


Bhujangasana, Natarajasana, Vajrasana, Padmasana and Vriksasana were among the asanas he had performed at different levels -Machame Camp (elevation-2835 Above Mean Sea Level), Shira Cave Camp (elevation-3750 AMSL), Barafu Camp (elevation-4673 AMSL), Uhuru peak (5895 AMSL) of the mighty Kilimanjaro.












Like other mountaineers, Hemant’s dream is also to reach the highest peak of the world-Mount Everest and he has started preparation for that.

Performing Yoga on Mount Everest will be exciting and more adventures, he feels.

Sharing the challenges faced by him while climbing Kilimanjaro, Hemant said “climbing mountain is only possible with strong mindset and with the mentality that pain is temporary and pride is permanent. Usually people believe that during expedition mountaineer only climb but reality is that we have to go down as per the demands of route.”
