A youth mountaineering expedition from Krishna Ghati sector in Mendhar, comprising eight young girls and ten boys from the remote Sagra and Balnoi villages, scaled Stok Kangri (6120 m) in Ladakh on August 4.
The expedition was addressed and felicitated by Lieutenant General RR Nimbhorkar, Corps Commander White Knight Corps at Nagrota, on Monday.
The young mountaineers were flagged off from Rajouri by the General Officer Commanding, Ace of Spades Division, on July 14.
The Corps Commander congratulated the young boys and girls and said their success will inspire them to re-define their limits of endeavour and reach for the best in life with hard work and self-belief. He hoped that their example would inspire other young people in Jammu and Kashmir similarly.
He presented the children with mementos at an impressive ceremony as a mark of their achievement.
