Jammu Tawi, April 21
Nat Manch Founder and President, Tarun Sharma honored Lt. Colonel Ranveer Singh Jamwal for the massive achievement. He is the only person from the Jammu & Kashmir state to climb Mount Everest thrice. While addressing the gathering, Nat Manch President, Tarun Sharma complimented Lt. Col Ranveer Singh Jamwal for being among a few mountaineers in the world who had scaled Mount Everest, the highest peak in the world, on three occasions.
He further said he is fine example of the dedication of Indian Soldiers to do their best and exceed the standards every day to take care of their fellow Indians.
He is clearly a role model for many not only in the state but also in the country. He has taken PM Swachh Bharat idea to a new level and has led two back to back cleaning campaigns in Everest region which is the most inhospitable terrain in the world.
Ranveer Singh is an experienced mountaineer who led an Army expedition of 30 climbers to Mount Everest with the dual purpose of marking 50 years of the ascent of the first Indian team and bringing down over 4, 000 Kilos of trash left behind by various expeditions on the slopes over the years.
He had been awarded Tenzing Norgay National adventure award equivalent to Arjuna Award by the president for his outstanding contribution in the field of mountaineering.
Two documentaries have been made on him & his team’s achievements on Everest which were featured on Discovery Channel in 2012 and on NDTV Channel in 2015. Ranjeet Singh, Mohit Sharma, Rajinder Singh and several others were present at the occasion.
