Giripremi and SwaroopSeva (NGO) ten members are on their way to Pitthorgarh in Uttaranchal to support flood relief Operation. The team departed from Giripremi office, Pune on 26th June 2013 at 9.30am. The team consists of UmeshZirpe, BhushanHarshe, Ganesh More, Ashish Mane, TekrajAdhikari, Anand Mali, Krishna Dhokale, Abhijeet Deshmukh, Atul Murmure & Kaustubh Thakar. They will provide relief and support by way of food, medicine for the survivors of the massive destruction in Uttarakhand due to flash floods and landslides. We know from experience that, (Giripremi's team survived the cloudburst and then supported the flood relief operation in August 2011 in Leh.) after a disaster like this, tourists and local people are most vulnerable with the loss of livelihoods, possessions and homes.
We need your support and blessings to do well in this crisis. Thanking you and looking forward to your positive response.
Our team Giripremi has reached to Asskot, Pithoragad in today morning. They were started for trek in high mountains with food, medicine for the villagers (local people). Due to flood, contact with various villages has got broken. Hence, they have not got food, medicines etc. for last 3-4 days. Our team has taken the responsibility of one village, and started trek towards the village with sufficient food and medicine.

Mountaineering is an extreme sport. It's play grounds are far from the civilization. It demands high quality equipment for safety and survival. It's probably the sport which has longest time frame. Generally, an expedition continues for several days and sometime months. All these factors impose a burden off high costs on this sport.
