Description

ONE DAY ADVENTURE TREKKING AT TARANGA HILLS

 

Date: 4th September 2022

 

GUNI-VMPIM with the direction of GUNI-Sports and Cultural Department has organized one-day adventure trekking activity at Taranga Hills, Gujarat. The activity was conducted in the collaboration with Adventure Trails and Green Taranga Mission (established and operating from 2020) to make the youth aware about the wild-life conservation, reducing wastage of food, carbon-footprint, plastic free zones, medicinal and herbal plants, and the rich wild-life resources.

 

44 students from MBA semester III joined for this activity. Along with students, two faculty coordinators from VMPIM, namely, Prof Dhara Jha and Ms Nirali Rathod and two faculties from Sports and Cultural Dept-Mr Kalpesh Patel and Mr Kinjal Patel joined the same. After reaching to the base at Atri Ashram, students had an interaction with the trekking guide and expert Mr Rajendrasinh Jadeja who is holding more than 40 years of experience in his field as wild-life conservationist and an avid trekker. First phase of the day was organized for jungle-trekking with rappelling exercise. While following the trek the students were enlightened about the abundant treasures the wild-life is offering to the mankind and the ecology of the Taranga and its surroundings. All the students have experienced the thrill and adventure of rappelling. After getting back to the base and having the lunch, the next phase of trekking started. The participants headed for climbing Siddhasheela located near the Taranga Jain Temple. The experience of trekking inculcated and reintroduced several skills and virtues for the humankind. The students made sure to not litter any rubbish while trekking. It also inculcated the gratefulness and team-bonding sub-consciously among them. All and all, the students trekked for almost ten kilometres in the span of two hours of trekking. In their words, it was indeed one of the finest experiences that they had in their time as a student at VMPIM.
