First Indian to cross the Atacama Desert

I got the much awaited call an hour ago. Sumanth has successfully and safely completed the Atacama Crossing. What a proud moment for him and us! He has received the medal and has checked into the hotel for a much deserved shower (after a week) and a pizza & coke lunch.

Will post pics and other updates once he gets back to the hotel for some R&R.

You can follow him on twitter as @skeeedamnbee for updates from Chile over the next few hours.

Thank you one and all for your support, your cheery messages and being there for us. Means a lot!


  1. What a feat ! Proud of you Sumanth - way to go man. India lost the cricket match today, but India won because of you.
    Congratulations to the Cidambi's

  2. This is amazing! Congratulations to Sumanth. Thanks for sharing this, Nandita!
