In a display of remarkable courage, endurance, and teamwork, a team of mountaineers from the Indian Army, led by Col Rajneesh Joshi, accomplished a historic feat by successfully climbing Mount Kun, towering at an impressive height of 7103 meters. The challenging expedition, carried out on behalf of the esteemed 19 Infantry Division, tested the team’s mettle as they confronted adverse weather conditions and overcame numerous challenges throughout their arduous journey.

The momentous expedition commenced on 8th July, with the team ceremoniously flagged off from Baramulla by Maj Gen Rajesh Sethi, SM, VSM, GOC 19 Infantry Division. Setting out from the base camp on 11th July, the intrepid mountaineers fearlessly braved the unpredictable elements, pushing their physical and mental limits to the extreme. With unwavering determination and the indomitable spirit characteristic of the Indian Army, they conquered Camp 1, Camp 2, and Camp 3, steadily inching closer to their ultimate goal.

The crowning moment of triumph arrived on the 18th of July at 11:50 AM, as the team reached the awe-inspiring summit of Mount Kun. Adding an extraordinary touch to their accomplishment, the mountaineers performed Yoga at an astonishing altitude of 7103 meters, setting a new record as the highest point ever where Yoga has been practiced.

This remarkable feat not only showcases the unwavering dedication and exceptional skills of the Indian Army’s mountaineering team but also emphasizes the profound connection between physical well-being and spiritual practices. The team’s endeavor to incorporate Yoga into their conquest of Mount Kun serves as an inspiring testament to the harmonious blend of mind, body, and nature.

With the successful ascent of Mount Kun, attention now turns to the next challenging endeavor: an upcoming expedition to Mount Nun, soaring even higher at an awe-inspiring height of 7,135 meters. Buoyed by their recent accomplishment, the same resilient team will now descend to the road head camp and embark on their journey towards Mount Nun, carrying with them the hopes and aspirations of the entire nation.

The Indian Army mountaineers have once again exemplified their determination, bravery, and unwavering commitment to achieving extraordinary goals in the face of adversity. The nation eagerly awaits their next venture, extending heartfelt wishes for their continued success and safe passage, as they etch their names further into the illustrious annals of mountaineering history.
