Mount Khangchengyao at height of 6889 metre is considered amongst the most challenging peaks due to steep climbs, vertical ice walls, freezing temperatures and rarefied atmosphere. The expedition was planned as part of celebrations to commemorate Golden Jubilee of 1971 War and to honor the valour and sacrifice of the soldiers. 
In his message GOC Trishakti Corps expressed gratitude for contributions of veterans and called upon youth and media to carry forward the message of ‘Strength in Unity’.
