IAF Mountaineering Team explored Mt Garud Parvat an unclimbed peak in Arunachal Pradesh

Indian Air Force launched a mountaineering excursion to Gorichen region of Arunachal Pradesh with a goal to discover and climb unclimbed peaks. The team led by Wg Cdr D Panda, included 15 air warriors. After widespread search and scouting, the team summited an unclimbed peak of height 5887M. It was a exciting and exhausting task for the team to discover unexplored terrain and find a way up the mountain peak. This was the very first time that IAF has attempted an exploration into this area of Eastern Himalayas.

The peak lies on the west of Mt Gorichen and has been named as ‘Mt Garud Parvat’ by the IAF team who ascended it for the first time in history.
