The team was trained by a team of veterans of the Army’s Special Forces. The military spokesman said that this challenging five-day task was successfully completed on September 11, starting on September 7. With a very difficult journey of 60 kms, the team of the handicapped has created a world record by climbing a height of four thousand feet.
The soldiers of the Indian Army were also stunned to see the spirit of the handicapped team which became an example of physical and mental strength. The eight-member team had to walk 15 kilometers daily. On the journey, the crew would encounter huge crevices of glacier, hard icy surface like steel, streams of icy water and blood-curdling cold on rocky paths. The 15 km distance had to be completed before 4 pm.
Throat starts drying up due to icy winds. Despite this, the team displayed exceptional skill as they walked the Siachen Glacier with ladders, ice aids and ropes. It was a unique test of not only physical but mental strength, on which the team completely met.
Military personnel continue to encourage
Wherever the team of the handicapped passed, they continued to receive the affection and encouragement of the soldiers. On the courageous display of the team, the army personnel also expressed their respect for the differently-abled.
