JAMMU: Tawi Trekkers J&K, one of the biggest trekking clubs in the country, organised a day-long unique mixed age group one-day trekking expedition led by 76-year old, Prof Lalit Magotra from Mahore Garh to Mansar.Otherwise scheduled on International Men’s Day (November 19), the trekking was postponed for unavoidable reasons.However, the event turned out to be a unique trekking expedition on little explored trek with participants from mixed age groups and gender.Starting the seven kilometres trek from Mohoregarh Fort, about 17 kms from Nud in Samba district, the trekkers enjoyed beautiful panoramic views of the nearby hills while ascending the well maintained trail.The forts of Dhergarh and Bhupnergarh also seemed quite near but were almost inaccessible for the trekkers as they were separated by deep and steep ravines.Led by founder member and now advisor of the Club, Prof Lalit Magotra, the 11-member group comprised president of the Club, Ram Khajuria (71), Principal of Oriental Academy Senior Secondary School, Vivek Chauhan (59), Executive Editor Sportsline, Sanjeev Sharma (48), Narinder Singh (55), senior trekker, Sushil Singh (40) and joint secretary of the club, Abhimanyu Sherpa, PG Student of JU, Bhanu Partap Singh, Dr Ishmika Thappa and College student, Akshita Khanna.The trekkers were enchanted by the beauty of serene Mansar lake when it suddenly appeared before them on reaching the top point of the trek.It is pertinent to mention here that this trek is a part of the exhaustive reconnaissance to be carried out by the club in the Purmandal, Mohoregarh, Bhupnergarh, Dhergarh, Mansar and Surinsar areas for making this area a winter hub of soft adventure activities like adventure camps/ picnics and short heritage treks.
