Students of IIM Lucknow are preparing for yet another Himalayan Mountain Challenge scheduled in the second week of December.

"We start preparing them as early as two months in advance so that they maximise the learnings from the program," shares, Izzat Yaganagi, Head of Experiential Learning at Indiahikes, who personally visited their Lucknow campus for a briefing.

Meanwhile, students of IIM Indore are about to start their Himalayan Outbound Programme in the next two days across five of our treks. We wish them all the best!

These are immersive Experiential Learning Programmes where students are tasked with planning and executing their own trekking expedition. Over 4 adventurous days, they'll journey to a summit and safely return to the base camp. All in diverse teams of 8 to 10, showcasing a blend of skills and abilities.
