Everest Uncensored - Hiking Through the Years

“The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
    ― Aron Ralston, Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Deerwalk has always believed in the energy of the outdoors and the verve it transmits to those who venture. The total number of hikes gone, the places conquered, the time spent together, the memories made thus far, from the days of D2Haweye to the ones in Deerwalk; it has truly been an achievement to be proud of.

A total of 338 hikes, with 867 participants are in record via 2170 everestuncensored posts published thus far. The trips pushed boundaries and conquered altitudes of above 5000 with Yala Peak and Thorong La Pass being a couple of examples. The stereotypical image of an IT professional gets redefined when such numbers are stacked up.

The journey continues as the new comers are introduced to this Deerwalk culture of exploring, while the old ones still lead the way venturing into new territories. It is said that creativity is fueled by expeditions, and hikes have proven to be an effective catalyst to stimulate the minds that has been the foundation of this company.
