“Everybody climbs trees straight up. I thought, why not climb upside down and set a unique example,” Haryana’s Mukesh Kumar says.
NEW DELHI: This man from Haryana is obsessed with climbing trees. So far, nothing too unusual about that. But 32-year-old Mukesh Kumar says he loves climbing trees – upside down. “I started climbing trees upside down when I was 13-years-old,” he says. “Everybody climbs straight up. I thought, why not climb upside down and set a unique example.” He admits he has injured himself multiple times while climbing trees but that has not stopped him from pursing his unusual passion.
“Initially, I could only climb two to three feet, but after continuous practice, I can now climb tall trees,” MailOnline reports him saying. “I am always looking for taller trees so that I can accomplish a bigger feat.”
“I am always looking to improve the time in which I can climb the tree,” Mr Kumar adds. “But climbing up backwards takes more time. I am faster when I am climbing down.”
