HAWS summits 17350 ft height

SRINAGAR: Students undergoing mountain warfare advance training at HAWS successfully summited a height of 17350 ft from September 27, to September 29 2017 in J&K region, a defence spokesman said.

“A total of nine student officers and 79 student NCOs under the training team of HAWS were personally lead by Maj Gen Atul Kaushik, Comdt HAWS, and traversed the treacherous route with a mix of Ice Wall, Moraines, Glacial fields and crevasses,” the spokesman said.  “The team fixed numerous ropes to successfully summit the feature without any injuries. The ‘Height Gain’ exercise is a confidence booster for students undergoing training and enables them to operate at altitudes above 17000ft.”
