Jaipur Mountaineers Make It To The Far North!

When passion becomes purpose, miracles happen. This has been proved by three young mountaineers from Pink City who followed their passion and made it truly evident that there is no peak of the world higher than willpower.

Having started their journey of bravery from Tongul village at Kargil on August 27, Rahul Bairwa, Sandeep Saini and Nipun Shashtri climbed for 24 days and achieved the rare feat of scaling 7135 meters of Mount Nun, the highest peak of Himalayan Range lying on the Indian side of LoC.

Having survived the extreme climatic conditions, heavy snowfall for more than 72 hours, lack of oxygen due to the altitude and having lost a friend to hypothermia on the way, did not let their will to conquer the mountain die and they started to climb again on 19th September after having been stranded for almost 9 days due to thunderstorm and snow.

Although most of their team members had climbed down due to extremely bad weather, this trio did not back down and made way for success through their constant struggle and undying motivation.
