Jadhav and Mokashi are the first Indian railwaymen to achieve the feat of scaling Mount Nun peak situated at 7,135 meters above sea level on August 21, 2022.

“This expedition aims to spread the word about climate change and global warming. This expedition would be the first of its kind from Railways which is itself a record,” Lalwani said.

The Central Railway Adventure Sports Club under Central Railway Sports Association organises campaigns at many forts in Maharashtra to educate young minds about the value of trekking and forts.

Additionally, they have carried out numerous rescue missions that have saved many lives, and the team engages in a variety of activities such as assisting in disaster zones, planning cycling campaigns, and educating people about the significance of cycling.

The Railway Sports Promotion Board (RSPB) is the apex organisation under the Ministry of Railways that functions with the complete mandate of sports promotion at the national and international podiums.
