Good route

The first rule of an expedition is that everyone should stick together

Risk expedition

You can't gather much if you won't go on risk expedition. Leaders never fear the thorns; they'll still go in for the beautiful roses no matter the number of pricks they'll get."

If the worst, or best, happens

"And if the worst, or best, happens, and Death comes for you in the snow, he comes disguised as Sleep, and you greet him rather as a welcome friend than a gruesome foe." ― Apsley Cherry-Garrard, The Worst Journey in the World

We need the tonic of wildness...

"We need the tonic of wildness...At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature." ― Henry David Thoreau, Walden: Or, Life in the Woods

Matter of pride for ongc

Mr Dharmendra Pradhan said that it would indeed be matter for pride for not only ONGC but also the entire nation once the expedition team comes back with flying colors. "I see future leaders in each of the expedition members, as when you counter the elements, no challenge seems too big to surmount", he said. Appreciating the inclusion of two women ONGC executives, Shri Pradhan "We look forward to welcoming you back and celebrate the spirit of success, adventure and camaraderie".

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn." ― John Muir, The Mountains of California
