MIT students to trek on mountain ranges across the country 

A team of four Manipal Institute of Technology students, with a heart for trekking, are in the process of climbing several peaks of the mountain ranges in India. They began their first phase of expedition to the summits in South India on May 11 and have completed a number of them in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu including Mullayangiri and Doddabetta. 

Their plan is to climb the peaks around the country in four phases spread over four years during semester breaks around this time. They have also included some of the peaks in Chhattisgarh, Odisha and Maharashtra as well in phase one. 

Tiranga Damodar, as the adventurers call themselves, was flagged off by MIT Director, Dr Srikanth Rao on May 11. The students plan to hoist a Tricolour atop every peak. The present trekkers are: Mihir Kolekar, Naman Lawania, Ankit Jajoo and Ankit Agrawal, and the ground support is being provided by Tanya Singh, Delicia Gonsalvis and Vinitha. Mihir said they would invite other universities to join them.
