NCC Girls’ Expedition Flagged in after Scaling Mt Deo-Tibba

Officiating Director General NCC Maj Gen C Prakash flagged-in the NCC Girl Expedition team to Mount Deo-Tibba (19688 ft) in Himachal Pradesh at HQ DG NCC, here today. He congratulated the 31 girl cadets and 19 support staff for their successful ascent to the peak on 13 & 14 Jun 15. The Team Leader Col Gaurav Karki handed over the Expedition Flag to the DG during the ceremony. The all girls’ expedition was the first expedition to climb the mount in the current year. The weather conditions made the climb challenging and tough. The successful climb to Mount Deo-Tibba (which in Hindu mythology means the assembly place of the Gods) by the 50 member team, through difficult terrain, inclement and unpredictable weather conditions, was a splendid success. In his address, the officiating DG NCC congratulated the Cadets and NCC Staff and mentioned that this is a precursor to the next Expedition to Mount Trishul in Aug-Sep 2015. He said this exposure would hold the team in good stead for the ultimate mission of scaling Mount Everest scheduled in May next year.
