White Water Rafting expedition across Khardungla on river Nubra- Shyok

Siachen Glacier

 

The Siachen, at the North- Eastern tip of Ladakh, literally means the ‘Land of Wild Roses’ and is famed as the highest battle filed in the world, with the Indian Army holding posts at unimaginable heights across the largest non polar glacier in the world – “The Siachen”.

Adventure sports, a hallmark of the Indian Army, has since time immemorial been revered as a character and personality development aspect of our culture and has been propagated in all its forms. By the un-daunting efforts of Siachen Bde a Maiden Rafting Expedition is being held in Trans – Khardungla region over an average altitude of 12,000 feet an endeavour to sail into the LIMCA Book of world record.

The Rafting Expedition, first conceptualized by the Siachen Bde in order to put the trans- Khardung La region on to the Adventure sports World Map, will also attempt to establish a ‘LIMCA Book of world Record” by conducting the highest White Water Rafting endeavour through the razor sharp rock faces, near vertical drops, freezing icy-cold waters and the scorching, untamed sun, over an unnerving arduous stretch of 250 kms with the highly trained rafting team of Siachen Bde, led by one of the most decorated soldiers in the discipline , Maj KS Panigrahy , a Limca Book Record holder for the “Longest Catamaran Sailing Expedition in India”.
