“The mountains are calling and I must go.” – John Muir
The Department of French organised a webinar on “Adventure and Mountaineering” on 18th July 2020. The session was handled by the leading industry expert Preetham Menon. Through a gripping presentation style and rippling passion Mr. Menon was able to captivate all of the listeners. He introduced several aspects of adventure tourism such as various skills and requirements for mountaineering and the mindset that one needs to have. As Mr Menon remarked, the feeling of achievement once you reach the summit of a mountain is incomparable. The journey itself will open your mind to who you really are. The session stood out as he also shared his own anecdotes and life lessons learned through his adventures.
