Satyabrata Dam

Extreme outdoors enthousiast

An ex-Indian Marine’s officer with 22 years of service, Satya is an extreme mountaineer with over 38 years of adventure career. He is the only person in the world to have successfully led expeditions to the three poles – Mt Everest, North and South Poles. Satya has climbed the highest peaks of all seven continents, including multiple Everest summits, and over 350 peaks worldwide across all major mountain ranges.

“A globetrotting thrill seeker and a die-hard adrenaline junkie”, as he describes himself, Satya became a lover of mountains when, at the age of ten, he stepped on his first Himalayan Glacier and felt that the mountains would become his home, his friends and family. Some of Satya’s major adventures include circumnavigation in a sailboat, walking the length of Africa from Tunisia to South Africa, traversing the Silk Route from Mongolia to Istanbul, and skiing across the Greenland icecap.

With a lifetime commitment to save the planet, Satya is a green activist and leads ice-study field expeditions to the Polar Regions. Satya is also a TED Fellow and has published books on climbing and fiction.
