First ever all Women Expedition

Army Chief General Deepak Kapoor Flagged in the First Ever Women Expedition Team for Army Corps of Engineers to Indira Col, today at Army Headquarters, New Delhi.

The expedition led by Major Megha Astagikar summitted Indira Col, located at an altitude of 20,187 feet, after trekking 103.10 kilometers on 15 Aug 09, which coincided with the 62nd Independence Day. Enroute to Indira Col, the team halted at eight camps to carry out acclimatisation, training and build-up of essential logistics. Braving inclement weather and extremely difficult terrain conditions, Indira Col was summitted well before the planned schedule.

Prior to undertaking the expedition, a detailed planning and rigorous training in basic ice-craft and mountaineering skills was carried out by the team at the Army Mountaineering Institute, Siachen Base Camp. Major AR Ramakrishnan, the trainer of the expedition team, inspite of being a battle casualty summitted Indira Col alongwith the team making the achievement of the expedition spectacular and creditable.

A 17 women expedition team was flagged – off by the Vice Chief of Army Staff Lt Gen Noble Thamburaj on 03 August 2009.
