Meet Anurag Nallavelli, A Software Engineer From Hyderabad Who Scaled The Dhaulagiri Peak Without Oxygen Support

Hyderabadis reaching heights (quite literally). It is an absolute delight whenever we hear about one of our own achieving great things and setting new records. And today we talk about one of those Hyderabadis. A techie based in the US climbs Dhaulagiri without oxygen support. He now is the second Hyderabadi ever to summit a peak which is more than 8,000 meters in Nepal.

Anurag Nallavelli, a 30-year-old software engineer that works for Ford Motor Company in the US. His great passion in life is to climb mountains and the boredom of the covid lockdown pushed him to pursue mountaineering much more seriously.

Anurag tana schooling Hyderabad lo complete chesi, computer science lo bachelor’s degree kosam Toronto, Canada ki velladu. And then, IT lo masters complete cheyyadaniki Manchester ki shift aiyyadu. 2015 lo Ford Motors tho work chesthu US lo settle aiyyadu. US lo unnapude mountains taana calling ani realise aiyyadu.

When he was asked about his feelings after successfully completing the Manaslu peak, he said “When you are on the top, you must be aware that you are only halfway through the journey. The other half is climbing down and that can be dangerous too.”
