A team of ONGC has successfully scaled the third highest and most challenging peak, Mt Kanchenjunga. The first group comprising five ONGC employees completed the mission on May 20, 2018 while the second group of four employees and one Indian Mountaineering Foundation (IMF) member summited the peak a day later.

With this, ONGC, whose team also scaled the Everest last year, becomes the first Corporate in the world to accomplish this difficult and unique feat.

The Kanchenjunga expedition team had three women members, out of which ONGCian Monti Rajkhowa and IMF’s Sheetal successfully summited the peak while Shipra Batra, another ONGCian accompanied the team as support staff. Monti Rajkhowa was also part of the Everest expedition last year, scaling up to camp 4 at an altitude of 8000 metres.
