The Award in Action- HAL New Public School, Bangalore.

 Adventurous Journey for Bronze level Award participants from HAL New Public School, Bangalore.

Trekking has always been a thrill and challenging activity for everyone.

Our 44 Bronze Award Aspirants of The International Award for Young People, India, along with four Award Leaders undertook an expedition and exploratory journey to the most alluring mountains of Western Ghats of India, Mullayangiri and Bababudangiri, Chikkamangalur, Karnataka, on 26th, 27th and 28th of March, 2023.

Mullayangiri is the highest peak in Karnataka with a height of 1930 m (6317 ft) from the sea level. A famous trekking trail runs between the eponymous peaks in this range with a pitch-dark cave having beautiful layers of
sedimentation. As a part of our expedition our Award participants were taken for a Mowgli walk inside the cave. They braved not only the slippery edges of onerous cliff but also the vehemence of midday sun. In the evening, the participants cooked various delicacies to showcase their newly acquired culinary skills, as a part of The Award Programme grooming.

On the second day, we walked almost a kilometer to the most serene lake of Hirekolale, where the young people pitched their tents and explored flora and fauna. Keeping in mind the spirit of The Award Programme, they engaged themselves in cleaning waste in and around the lake. Surrounded by coffee estate, Award participants were also able to witness the vast plantations. While returning they were given a yatra of the coffee museum in order to understand in depth about one specific flora. Last but not the least, this Adventurous Journey helped our Award participants to boost their confidence through various types of activities during the camp. They developed the skills of leadership, punctuality, honesty and togetherness, which are very important for young people to be well-rounded and sensitive people in the future.

Award Leaders Ms. Aarti Deshpande, Ms. Preet Kaur, Ms. Naik Kavitha Keshav and Ms. Brindha Ilangovan accompanied the Award participants on their Adventurous Journey.
