Malkiat Singh, a former Punjab Public School student, fulfilled his dream of summiting Mount Everest, inspired by a meeting with Sir Edmund Hillary, the legendary mountaineer, during his school days.

  • Singh, a former athlete and MBA graduate, embarked on his Everest expedition in 2022, following a rigorous training regime guided by his elder son.
  • After reaching the Everest base camp on April 20, Singh underwent acclimatization climbs before starting the summit attempt.
  • Despite facing delays due to bad weather, Singh successfully reached the summit on May 19, hoisting the Nishan Sahib and New Zealand national flags.
