Kuntal Joisher, World’s First Vegan To Climb Mt Everest joins NDTV-India Animal Fund #FreedomForAll Telethon and talks about his experience of being World’s first vegan to climb Mt Everest. He said, “I knew that a well-balanced and plant vegan diet would supply me with all of those nutrition required to not only survive, but thrive while climbing these big mountains. That is why I promised myself that I was going to climb Everest as a vegan, or not do it at all. Now, as I reflect upon the last 12 years of my journey, I have been to the top of Mount Everest twice already, both from the Nepal side and the China side. I have climbed to the top of the tallest mountain in southern America, the tallest mountain in northern America, and I have been part of many, many tough and difficult expeditions across the world.” He further said that veganism is going mainstream and there is a lot of research that has been coming out in the last few years demonstrating that, truly speaking, there's no difference between a plant-based diet compared to an omnivorous diet when it comes to building muscle, when it comes to building stamina and when it comes to building endurance.
