Trek of a lifetime

Trek of a lifetime

Adventure enthusiasts were thrilled over the weekend as Kingfisher Blue gave them an opportunity to be part of a trek to the Everest Base Camp.

The primary selection process consisted of calling a group of enthusiastic adventure aficionados for the ‘Blue Mile Campout’ that took place over the weekend at the Blue Zone camp, Manchinbele.

Going head to head at rappelling, rope activities, trekking and water sports, the participants had a blast.

To shortlist adventurers for the final trek, the campouts are being held across the country – North, South, East, West and North East. In Bangalore, the lucky few were selected for the campout at Machinbele through digital and on-ground registrations and a wild-card entry via a triathlon challenge that was held earlier.

The campout was designed to test the contestants on various parameters of physical and mental fitness to determine their compatibility for the final trek. Spread over two days of vigorous adventure escapades, the contestants had to undertake enduring tasks such as rappelling, climbing across rocky terrains, kayaking and a survival trek deep into the forest.

One of the victorious participants said, “This has been the most exhilarating experience of my life! I enrolled myself for this a while back and can’t believe I’ve made it this far. The spirit of competitiveness dissolved into a fun evening as we had a great time discussing our adventure experiences.”

Accompanying the adventure enthusiasts at the campout was the stunning adrenaline junkie Gul Panag.
