In 2016, Kuntal Joisher was the first documented vegan to stand on the top of the world. Mount Everest was a culmination of a journey built around the discovery of his life’s mission and bravery to step outside the norm to pursue something spectacular.
Having never been an athlete and weighing upwards of 240 pounds, Kuntal defied his sedentary lifestyle, fell in love with the Himalayas and started to go after one of the most insanely difficult adventures; the summit of Everest.
His story is energizing, exhilarating, and will move you to “find your Everest”- a worthwhile cause that drives your life in meaning and purpose.
In this episode Kuntal shares the importance of discovering your life’s purpose and how it leads to growth and success, his Everest journey and how he persevered through three separate trips wrought with hardships and tragedy, the emotions that come with finally accomplishing your life’s goal and many other lessons he has learned along the way.
He’s an amazing story teller and I could honestly listen to his adventures all day long. He’s passionate about veganism, mountaineering, spreading love and positivity and influencing those around him to discover their own passions.
I absolutely loved chatting with Kuntal and hope you guys enjoy this really excellent addition to the Like a Bigfoot Podcast.
