Jamshedpur: The Mt Kanamo Expedition is part of the yearly Calendar of Tata Steel Adventure Foundation (TSAF) . Through such programmes, TSAF inculcates team spirit amongst the participants. TSAF believes that the challenges of Adventure Sports should not be looked upon as conflicts, rather when everyone’s energy is directed towards a common goal, it also leads to more trust among team members. Participants are encouraged/motivated to try new skills which in turn provide a degree of delight through the discovery of their hidden potential, which they did not know existed. The Mt Kanamo Expedition is attracting increasing number of participants each year.
Today, the Tata Steel Adventure Foundation (TSAF) is happy to announce the successful completions of two expeditions to Mt Kanamo (19600ft) in Spiti Valley of Himachal Pradesh. Batch 1: August 14 to 22nd 2018 and batch 2: August 24thto Sept 1st 2018.
