Kuntal Joisher is the first vegan to summit Mt. Everest. He shared stories of his trials and tribulations and though not born Jain, he described how his closest friends have been Jain and actually inspired his entree into veganism. He is pictured here giving credit to the generous sherpas that make these kind of treks possible, in his case averting frostbite, by the sherpa giving Kuntal his own warm gloves. He presents a compelling story about his motivation for veganism in the YouTube clips that follow. Search online for further details about his climbing!
