Ac­tor Amit Sadh (above) loves climb­ing and wants to scale Mount Ever­est for which he has al­ready be­gun prepa­ra­tions. At the age of six, Amit started rock climb­ing and spent most of his child­hood in the hills, trekking.

Tak­ing his pas­sion to the next level, the Kai Po Che (2013) ac­tor now aims to con­quer the world’s high­est peak and is al­ready un­der­go­ing ba­sic train­ing for the task.

“I have taken off six months in 2019 to pre­pare to scale Mt Ever­est. I plan to stay for a month in Leh, J&K, be­fore I go on the ex­pe­di­tion,” Amit said in a state­ment here.

The ac­tor, who is de­ter­mined to accomplish the task in 2019, says: “A lot of per­mis­sions have to be taken and it’s not easy to climb Ever­est. About `35 lakh will be needed for this and cur­rently, I’m in the process of fig­ur­ing out the lo­gis­tics. I’m also lock­ing the team that I’ m go­ing to be climb­ing with,” Amit said.

Mean­while, he has been roped in for a film, which also fea­tures ac­tor Ak­shay Ku­mar. He will be es­say­ing the role of a hockey player.
