I’m a rather late entrant into the world of adventure activity – I had just crossed the half-century mark when I first went scuba diving, and was almost touching 60 when I set off for my first trek. But I think I have more than made up for any lost time! In early 2013, my wife Neena and I fulfilled a long-cherished dream to go diving in the Revillagigedos Islands, a volcanic archipelago in the Pacific Ocean, off Mexico – it was an experience which far exceeded every expectation! In trekking, my goal currently is to reach the summit of a 6000m peak. In 2012, I had attempted an ascent on Stok Kangri in Ladakh (6153m) but my attempt ultimately proved unsuccessful. This year, in 2013, I plan to have a shot at climbing Mentok Kangri (6250m), in Rupshu Plateau, Eastern Ladakh .
