VIDEO: Two Men Attempt the Impossible, Create History as India’s First Frozen Waterfall Climbers

Abhijeet Singh and Pranav Rawat ascended the frozen ShelaNela waterfall in Spiti Valley, becoming the first frozen waterfall climbers in India to do so.

When was the last time you tried something for the first time? Are you living life to the fullest? Have you taken enough risks? Have you pushed yourself to the limit and then some?

It was questions like these that pushed Abhijeet Singh, an MBA graduate to quit his job: “After working in a job for about a year, I realised that I can’t do this for the rest of my life. I wanted to do something new,” he says

Abhijeet and his friend, Pranav Rawat, an apple farmer and avid mountaineer then set out on an exciting – yet risky adventure – to become the first to climb a frozen waterfall in India.

“Waterfall climbing is an extreme form of climbing. The risks and techniques involved make it a very difficult pursuit. No one has attempted to start and finish climbing the waterfall,” they explain.

Their goal: To climb the ShelaNela waterfall in Spiti Valley of Himachal Pradesh
