The 62 trekkers of VDJS went for the IAYP Mussoorie Adventure Camp from 11th-16th October challenging their  grit and metal. During their stay at Nirvana Camp, Barkot, the girls successfully attempted ziplining from a stature of about 100 feet and rappelling set at a height of 50 feet creating a record in itself. The skydivers of VDJS experienced the freefall from the heights of 70 feet, falling ‘belly to earth’. Jindalites visited the holy Gangani temple, trekking through the rugged slopes and rocky tracks to reach a height of 70 feet, and also crossed the far lengths of 220 metres of a river displaying their optimism, and gallantry. The dauntless Jindalites bonded over Jam sessions, team-building activities, and the aroma of Maggi and Chinese cuisines. Amid the enchanting beauty of the hills, they also had a spiritual halt at Lakhamandal Shiva Temple and shoppers’ day at the famous Mall Road of Mussoorie. The visit to the Entomology Museum at Forest Research Institute in Dehradun enriched their understanding of the various stages of insect pests and the nature of damage caused by them to seeds, seedlings, felled timbers, bamboo, and finished products. The Jeep Excursion at Raja ji National Park and the scaling of the steep heights of  Vindhyavasini Mata Temple in Haridwar left the girls awestruck as they witnessed the pristine beauty of nature.  Jindalites bid their final adieu to the serene mountains of Uttarakhand by experiencing the sanctity of the Ghats of Har ki Pauri and by being a part of the auspicious Ganga Aarti. The six-day trip was a roller-coaster ride of surprises, challenges, perseverance, and gratitude for Mother Nature that cradles the life of every being with her rich resources.
