Facing Nature’s Wrath: Surviving a Terrifying Cloudburst

Throughout this adventurous journey, these brave mountaineers faced numerous challenges, but none as terrifying as the night of October 3. Having successfully climbed Mt Jongsong in Sikkim just the previous day, the team suddenly found themselves in grave danger when a sudden cloudburst triggered flash floods. “We had hardly sighed in relief of completing our mission when around 10 pm the first waters came gushing in. Our team managed to get out with our stuff in 10 minutes, and being mountaineers, our first instinct took us up the hills. And that window of 10 minutes and running up to the hills rather than down saved us, I think,” said Colonel Ranveer Singh Jamwal, the team leader.

India’s Unnamed Peaks: A Startling Discovery

In their pursuit of hoisting the national flag atop each state’s highest peak, the mountaineers made an intriguing discovery. They found that many of these lofty summits remain unnamed, like the highest point in Punjab, which is located in the Naina Devi Range. This mission not only celebrated India’s geographical diversity but also shed light on the need to acknowledge and name its less-explored natural wonders.

The “Har Shikhar Tiranga” mission, which commenced on October 16 last year in Arunachal Pradesh, covered an astounding 30,000 kilometers, making it a truly one-of-a-kind adventure in the history of the nation. The mountaineers’ resilience, passion, and dedication have not only left a lasting mark on the Indian landscape but have also inspired a sense of unity and adventure among the citizens of this incredible country.
