Satyarup Siddhanta, 35, a Kolkata based mountaineer has set the world record of youngest to climb 7 highest volcanoes, 7 highest mountains in 7 continents in 7 years. He is also the first Indian to conquer the seven mountain peaks and seven volcanic summits.
A Software engineer by profession, Satyarup Siddhanta hails from Haridevpur in South Kolkata and is based at the Silicon Valley of India, Bengaluru. Reports suggest that he had to work different shifts in two companies to raise funds for his mountaineering trips. Siddhanta scaled these peaks between 2012 and 2019. He is the only Indian to scale “Seven Summits and Seven Volcanic Summits”. “I played the national anthem on the summit,” Siddhanta told journalists over a satellite phone after returning to camp . “It’s very cold and overcast here. I suspect I have sustained frost bite on my fingers.”
Importantly, Satyarup Siddhanta broke the record of Australia’s Daniel Bull who was 36 years 157 days when he achieved the feet.
