Young Sikh trekker from Kashmir hoists Sri Nishan Sahib at Sorus Lake

SRINAGAR: A young Sikh trekker from Budgam has made the Sikh Community proud. Amanpreet Singh has reached the source lake for the first time and hoisted the sacred Sri Nishan Sahib (orange flag). Sorus Lake is situated at an altitude of about 3,600 meters in Anantnag district. It remains a center of attraction for tourists especially in spring season.

Amanpreet Singh along with mountaineer Muzammil Hussain and other companions commenced the trek on April 29 to scale the snow-capped mountains to reach the Sorus Lake and hoist the sacred flag there. Amanpreet Singh, a former student of Tyndale Bisco School, Amritsar, has been fond of mountains and nature since childhood. Due to the activities conducted by the school, Amanpreet's tendency towards hills and mountainsi increased. He recently joined a local trekking group led by some athletes and here too he proved his mettle.

During a conversation with the local media, Amanpreet Singh said that when he went to his village Birwah with his father Rajinder Singh, he said that the biggest challenge in this track is snow. Amanpreet Singh said that the snowfall during the trekking made not only me but also my companions tired, but hoisting the Nishan Sahib was a matter of pride. He said that adequate preparation is necessary before going to the track. Apart from suitable clothing and footwear, it is essential to have adequate food, water, compass, map and first aid kit. You should be aware of weather conditions and potential hazards along the way.
