His friend and trekking colleague Cheran Shree posted a tribute to Amin saying “Who is going to plan our Himalayas trek, Who will motivate me during the trek, Who will be my tent mate, Who can throw roof top parties. Can’t believe you are no more big guy..miss you to the core..
RIP Amin Kittur ..The Mountain Man.”


Amin had studied in R.L. Science Institute and St. Mary’s High School, Belagavi. Currently he was working as Escalation Manager at Hewlett-Packard Bengaluru. He was awarded the Best NCC Cadet award at the hands of Atal Bihari Vajpayee, the then PM.
