At Kalypso we have always taken pride in our guides, but this day is extra-special…for, a bunch of our boys have just completed their mountaineering course at the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute and all of them have graduated with A grades!! Roger, Satheesh, Raja and Shinas – you have shone for us today!
The 28-day course involving rock, snow and ice climbing is arduous but exhaustive. It empowers the student to participate in any expedition that ventures upto 7000feet. The field training at the institute’s scenic base camp behind them, the Kalypso quartet finished the course with the tough climb to the peak of Renok at a height of 16500 feet.
We believe that our Team Kalypso occupies a singular position in that they regularly undergo refresher training in their core professional areas like rope skills, natural history, wilderness medicine etc by the best in the field. They have also received at various times, certification from pioneer institutes like HMI, Red Cross etc.
Kalypso believes that the spirit of adventure is what has kept mankind going since the beginning of Time. Today as our young adventurers receive their honours, we are satisfied we are doing our bit to keep that flame burning bright and strong.
Congratulations, Team Kalypso!
