Mohit Tolasati is looking for sponsors to help fund Mission Everest!
My mission to Everest, provides you with an incredible opportunity to have your brand associated with a truly inspirational endeavour. I have been in the tech industry for over 12 years, building consumer software for Billions of people worldwide. Outside my day job I am a trained pilot in both planes and helicopters, a skydiver in training and am now on the quest to summit Mt Everest to inspire the next generation to dream big!
Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world, standing at 8,848 meters (29,029 feet) above sea level. It is a challenge that has been attempted by many, but only a few have been successful. With determination, discipline and focus I aim to achieve this historic feature. The full expedition will take 60 days, starting in April 2023, and will cost a total of 70,000 GBP.
The goal is to inspire the next generation to dream big! And so the target audience includes youth across genders in the UK 13-40. This could scale to the USA and India as well as these are countries I've lived in.
Key Dates and Timings
1. After 6 months of intense training, I will make my way to Kathmandu from London in April 2023.
2. From Kathmandu, I will fly up to Lukla (9385 feet).
3. From Lukla I will trek my way up to Everest Basecamp (17430 feet) where the true challenge begins.
4. Over the course of six weeks I will acclimatize on the mountain, this involves travelling to high camps and back down to Basecamp again. This process is essential to get my body used to the altitude and reduced levels of oxygen on the mountain.
5. When the weather is stable enough, and I have acclimatized, I will make the summit attempt, leaving Basecamp and spending up to seven days on the mountain fighting cold, altitude and physical and mental exhaustion to achieve my goal of standing at 29,029 feet on top of the world.
Total duration of the expedition will be roughly 50-60 Days.
