In Gujarat, the Sardar Patel Narmada Trek (SPNT), a national level trekking camp for NCC Senior and Junior Division Cadets, has been flagged off today at Statue of Unity-Kevadia in Narmada district.

More than 1,000 cadets from Delhi, Madhya Pradesh, Chattisgarh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Karnataka, Goa, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Himachal and Punjab are participating in this camp.

The aim of organizing SPNT camp is to promote National Integration by gathering enthusiastic Nationalist youth from all faiths, castes and cultural identity at a place which is towered by the Iron Man of India.

The trek will infuse the spirit and passion for adventure, preservation of forests, environment and would motivate them to learn about local culture and traditions of vibrant Gujarat in the young cadets.

During the event, the NCC cadets will first trek from the Base Camp at NCC Academy Jeetnagar to Junaraj located 20 kilometres away in the Sundarpura.

They will visit Karjan Dam and power generation plant to study the scientific developments of the country. The trek will further be organized to visit the renowned Statue of Unity, Cactus Garden, Butterfly Garden, Ekta Garden and Valley of Flowers located in Kevadia to expose cadets to the ethnic products of local tribes, preservation of flora and fauna, the importance of wildlife and methods to protect nature.


This historical and adventurous trek is conducted every year by Gujarat NCC Directorate and selected cadets of different states invited to join this camp.
