The ITBP is all set to create a world record with the paramilitary force flagging of a 23-member team on a mountaineering and ski expedition to Mount Everest to ski down from the 8848-ft peak.

 

The team is expected to conquer the peak from the Chinese side, considered tougher than the more frequently taken route through Nepal.

 

The successful skiing from the Everest top by this team will be a world record in itself as no team has ever skied down from Everest successfully. Till date no Indian team has attempted to ski down from Mt Everest.

 

Delhi Lieutenant Governor Tejinder Khanna flagged off the team, which has five men who have scaled Everest earlier, from the headquarters of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) force here.

 

Khanna handed over the ceremonial pick-axe, donning the Tricolour and the ITBP flag, to team leader Prem Singh as he wished them success.
