About Event

The North Channel is widely regarded as the most difficult of the Ocean’s channels. Seven swims differ from the others in that they are extremely cold, are plagued by the infamous lions’ mane jellyfish, and involve numerous competing tides and currents all the way across to the final few meters of the swim. Since 1947, only 82 swimmers from all over the world have succeeded in crossing the Irish channel. Prabhat is the 56th swimmer to successfully cross the Irish Channel.

Because of the extremely cold water swim required for that Prabhat practice in Nainital Lake in Uttarakhand, patience and a strong temperament are required to endure the extreme cold conditions.

The swim was difficult, and most swimmers gave up a few miles before the finish line, with Prabhat filing Dizzy around 4 miles before the finish line. In her capacity as chief crew, Sally Mam provided magical feed after 8 hours. The magical feed contained hot water, honey, carbohydrate, and fruit squash. After that, he was re-energized and finished swimming in a graceful manner.

The world’s first, 100% natural solution designed to target low core body temperature, a newly discovered, clinically proven ROOT CAUSE of slow metabolism!
