The Jungle Ultra Marathon | Dalip Shekhawat
Show Notes

Today we welcome Dalip Shekhawat back to the show to tell us all about his most recent adventure, The Jungle Ultra, a 230K 5 stage multi-day event in Manu National Park, deep in the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest. You first met Dalip in Episode 30 when we talked about his summit of Mount Everest.  This time we talk about:

  • What it’s like traveling on foot through the untamed rainforest
  • The wildlife he saw along the way including snakes, monkeys and spiders
  • The self supported nature of the race
  • The multiple river crossings, mud and constant wet conditions
  • How he had to dig deeper than ever to complete stage 4, reportedly the hardest stage of any race in the world.

This is one event that almost sounds like too much, but it wasn’t for Dalip!  His stories reveal the strength of his spirit and love for the earth he travels.
