MIT students to trek on mountain ranges across country-1

Manipal: A team of four Manipal Institute of Technology students, with a passion for trekking, are in the process of climbing several peaks of the mountain ranges in India. They began their first phase of the expedition to the summits in South India on May 11 and have completed a number of them in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu including Mullayangiri and Doddabetta.

Their plan is to climb the peaks around the country in four phases spread over four years during the semester breaks around this time. They have also included some of the peaks in Chhattisgarh, Odisha and Maharashtra in phase one.

The Tiranga Damodar team, as the adventurers call themselves, was flagged off by MIT Director Dr Srikanth Rao on May 11. The students plan to hoist a Tricolour atop every peak. The trekkers are Mihir Kolekar, Naman Lawania, Ankit Jajoo and Ankit Agrawal. The ground support is being provided by Tanya Singh, Delicia Gonsalves and Vinitha. Mihir said the team would invite other universities to join the trek.
