The Indian climber was discovered in a deep crevice between Camp III and Camp II on the planet’s tenth-highest mountain, according to Thaneshwor Guragain, information officer for Seven Summit Treks, the expedition’s organizera. 

He was transported to Kathmandu and admitted to Medicity Hospital in the Lalitpur district’s Bhaisepati region. Anurag was discovered in a deep crevasse at around 5800 meters elevation on Thursday morning by a helicopter and a team of six Sherpa climbers led by Chhang Dawa Sherpa. 

He was brought to Pokhara’s Manipal Hospital before being airlifted to Kathmandu for further treatment. Anurag graduated from IIT Delhi in 2010, according to a family member. Anurag is on a mission to promote awareness of and action towards the UN Global Goals by climbing all 14 peaks higher than 8,000 meters, as well as the seven highest summits on each of the seven continents.
