The expedition was undertaken as a tribute to the valour of the Indian Army during the 1971 India-Pak war as part of the Swarnim Vijay Varsh Celebration Lt. Col. Amitabh Sharma, Defence spokesperson, Rajasthan told on Friday.

The team Daredevil XIV led by Captain B. Manoj Kumar and Naib Subedar Mala Ram, undertook an arduous trek braving the challenging weather and harsh conditions. The expedition team trekked along the Bhagirathi River to Gaumukh before proceeding to the Nandanvan Base Camp.

Mount Bhagirathi-II lies ahead of the Gangotri Glacier in the Garhwal Himalayas and is part of the Bhagirathi massif, which poses numerous challenges to the mountaineers and requires great technical skills to negotiate.
