A group of 124 students of BSSS ventured into challenging paths and inaccessible mountains at a thrilling place named Kathotiya. Under the leadership of the Physical Education Department of BSSS, the team reached Kathotiya for one-day trek in this forest range and enjoyed a lot amidst verdant environment.

The trekkers reached Jhiri, which is the source of the river Betwa, and saw near about 14,000-year-old rock paintings in the caves of the hills. The team showed their passion by rock climbing and repelling up the 84-feet-high rock. Climbing the rock with the help of a rope and landing through the set path was a very exciting experience.

Prof Nasir Ali trained the students for rock climbing and repelling and motivated them simultaneously. Then, the students went to the waterfalls at a distance of 5 km, while they were travelling.

On this occasion, Vishal Singh Sengar, Head of Physical Education said that it is a matter of great pleasure that girls are also participating in equitable adventure activities. The purpose of our one-day trekking is to take students away from stress to such a natural place, where the mobile world is far away and their health becomes even better.

Principal Dr John PJ said that with the participation of the Eco Tourism Development Board, the students of the college got exciting experiences and received medals and certificates for participating and encouraged them for adventure activities. The sequel to this adventure is in preparation for the wonderful and challenging trekking of Manali, Kasauli and Kheerganga in the month of October.
