Restaurant on way to Mt Everest! Two chefs create world record



CHANDIGARH: Taking their passion to another level, two Chandigarh-based chefs created a world record by setting up a fine dining restaurant for mountaineers on Island Peak (Imja Tse), Nepal, located at the height of 6189m from sea level.

Island Peak has remained a popular choice among mountaineers who come to summit Mount Everest.

Chef Sanjay Thakur and chef Sunder Rajan Palaniappan opened the pop-up restaurant on May 30 at 11am. Rajesh Kumar Yadav, a young photographer from Chandigarh, captured the historic moments in his camera. They recently got the certificate from Guinness World Records for the same.

Sanjay Thakur, who is also the vice-president of Young Chefs Association of India, said, “On May 25, we along with a professional mountaineering team proceeded towards the world’s highest peak Mount Everest. Our expedition was supported by the Indian Federation of Culinary Associations. Under the supervision of Guinness World Records, we did fine dining Indian cooking on the Island Peak using natural fuel and resources.”

Rajesh Yadav, who had done photography for some of the reputed media organizations in the city for the past 17 years and now runs his own photography venture, said, “I am very excited to be a part of this record-breaking expedition. This act is dedicated to the Ladakh-based ‘Save The Himalaya Foundation’ and for the betterment of environment.”
