J&K State Social Welfare Board in collaboration with J&K Mountaineering and Hiking Club (J&KMHC) organised three days orientation camp for Physically Challenged Persons. The camp was flagged off from Institute of Hotel Management (IHM) Raj Bagh by Director Social Welfare Department Kashmir.
The specially disabled were taken Rock Climbing Wall Nowgam where experts demonstrated the procedure for rock climbing. Out of 60 disabled persons, five attempted to climb the rock wall, despite their disabilities and two made it to the top, amidst cheers by the onlookers.
On the second day of their tour they visited Dachigam National Park.
The participants also had a joy ride on Gandola Cable Car at Gulmarg where they were assisted by the Gondola staff, so that they would not face any difficulty, as most of the participants were either on wheel chair or on crutches. It was a life time opportunity for them and they thoroughly enjoyed their visit. Certificates of participation were issued to them.
