Welcome to the Foundation
Founded in April 2015 by the World’s first ‘Everest twins’ Nungshi and Tashi Malik to mark their successful completion of the Explorers’ Grand Slam becoming the world’s youngest persons ever to do so, the NungshiTashi Foundation is dedicated to advancing the lives of Indian girls and women through outdoors, adventure sports and mountaineering
We envision India as an ‘Outdoor Nation’ with equal and active participation of women where they all have the opportunity to set their sights high and reach their highest potential.
NungshiTashi Foundation fosters outdoor spirit among Indians, especially girls and women to promote empowerment through self-awareness, leadership and outdoor livelihoods.
