The climb took place between the 15-18 December 2015. Using video evidence of the entire climb, the Kilimanjaro National Park Authority has officially verified Sanjay Pandit and his incredible record.
From our little research on Sanjay Pandit, it is clear that he has an impressive track record of climbing mountains in unconventional ways.
Sanjay Pandit and Mount Kosciuszko
In November 2014, Sanjay Pandit walked backwards up the highest peak of Australia, Mount Kosciuszko (2,228 m). This feat took him 5 hours and 45 minutes to complete, and he did so in traditional Nepali attire.
Sanjay Pandit and Mount Elbrus
Earlier in 2014, Sanjay Pandit set another record by climbing the highest mountain in Europe, Mount Elbrus in Russia, before spending 6 minutes and 3 seconds half-naked at the summit, where the temperature was recorded to be -60 degrees Celsius. Check out his video on YouTube.

Sanjay Pandit and his first ascent up Mount Kilimanjaro
According to Facebook records, this is not the first time that Sanjay Pandit has climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. He reached the summit back in April 2014 but presumably didn’t walk backwards then.
A video posted on YouTube shows Sanjay Pandit struggling to keep his footing as he walks up the steep gravel slope of Kibo on Mount Kilimanjaro.
We look forward to seeing what strange new record Sanjay Pandit will set next.
For now though, we wish to congratulate him on his Kilimanjaro record!
