On a bright, sunny morning, 16 students of Goa Institute of Management successfully climbed to the Chandrakhani Pass in Himachal Pradesh. They did this as a part of their Collaborative Leadership Programme with Indiahikes.

This trek was conducted as part of an experiential learning program focussed on developing collaborative skills and behaviors.

“Though collaborative behaviour and leadership can be learned, it is very difficult to learn or practice in a classroom or simulated setting. This is where the world of the outdoors lends itself very well,” shares Izzat Yaganagi, Head of Experiential Learning at Indiahikes.

This trek to Chandrakhani Pass was specially designed keeping this objective in mind.

Right now the students are descending to Nagruni at 11,145 feet. They will camp overnight at Nagruni return to Manali by tomorrow afternoon.
