Teen siblings conquer EBC

Vyom Tulsyan (16) and Ved Tulsyan (14) of India, along with Aaryam Murarka (10) of the United States, are three siblings who completed the Everest Base Camp expedition as teenagers. They describe their journey as an invaluable life lesson. The teenage brothers embarked on this mission to raise awareness about financial literacy.

“The trek to the Everest Base Camp was a journey of discovery, not only of the natural beauty of the Himalayan region but also of invaluable life lessons,” Vyom Tulsyan stated. “The lessons in goal setting, discipline, risk management, resource efficiency, adaptability, teamwork, and long-term thinking were invaluable. Embracing these principles ensures success, whether navigating the long Himalayan trails or the complexities of financial life.”

According to Vyom Tulsyan, these critical lessons helped them gain a new perspective not only on the physical beauty of life but also provided a new narrative on the abstract and deeper meaning of living. “The experience reaffirmed that with the right mindset and preparation, we can overcome enormous challenges and achieve our greatest aspirations,” he said.

They also had the invaluable opportunity to meet Sir Kancha Sherpa, the last living member of the original team that conquered Mount Everest. “His story of bravery and adventure was very inspiring,” they expressed joyfully. Ved Tulsyan added, “With the blessing of Sir Kancha Sherpa, as we approached EBC, the realization of achievement sank in.”

Reaching the base camp on International Everest Day, the day Nepali Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and New Zealander Edmund Hillary first scaled Mount Everest together on 29 May 1953, added a cherry on top of their achievement. Aaryam Murarka, who came from the USA for this expedition, stated that this trek was an adventurous escape from the city’s regular hustle and bustle.

“Reflecting on the journey, we realized what a life-changing lesson it had taught us. The experience involved more than just reaching the base camp,” said Vyom Tulsyan, explaining that meticulous planning, unwavering discipline, and shared determination are essential.

As part of their acclimatization process, they also went on a day hike to Summit Nagarjuna Hill and climbed Kala Patthar. “The climb was strenuous, but the panoramic view from the top was worth every step,” Vyom added. “I witnessed a sunrise over Everest that I will never forget. The sense of accomplishment was overwhelming.”

Vyom Tulsyan is a Class XII management student at Chinmaya International Residential School in Coimbatore. He aspires to pursue a career in finance. His hobbies include reading books on financial literacy and traveling.
