Have you heard about Mount Kalam?

There is a story behind this mountain which is named after Kalam.

In October 2015, two adventure enthusiasts Arjun Vajpai and Bhupesh Kumar climbed a peak in the Himalayas which was 6180 m above sea level. No one had explored this peak till then. It overlooked the Spiti Valley.

They hoisted the Indian flag there, celebrating their joy. They named it Mount Kalam to inspire young mountaineers.

The climb is dangerous as snow covers the deep crevasses that are hidden beneath. We get a terrific view of the Himalayan landscape from the altitude of 19,000 feet.
