Sujal Mukherjee (1932-1994) belonged to the first generation mountaineers of West Bengal. He started to trek in the Garwal and Kumaun Himalaya in 1961 and undertook his Basic and Advance Mountaineering Courses in HMI in the years 1964 and 1965. Since his introduction to the Indian Himalaya he remained an active alpinist and a keen rock climber. In the 1980’s, Sujal played a pivotal role in the camping and nature study movement of West Bengal. Inspired by Sujal’s humble, yet dedicated and academic approach to the outdoors and to carry on his legacy; some of his students of rock climbing got together to organize an annual lecture in his memory.
