Maninder Kohli was drawn to the mountains at an early age inspired by his father, Captain MS Kohli, who led India's path breaking climb of Everest in 1965. Over the years, his travels have taken him across the Himalaya and to several locations around the world climbing, trekking, skiing, rafting and mountain biking. Maninder currently runs the Juniper Outdoor Pursuits Centre and is based in Delhi. He has previously worked with Citibank for 20 years and has found that outdoor adventure is a great way to unwind from the stress of modern corporate life. Maninder is a strong advocate of people taking to the outdoors and feels that it is a great value add if each youngster is given the "right" introduction to adventure.
