 Last year a few adventurers from the club, discovered and summitted the peak. And this year, yet again we aim to conquer the highest peak of Andhra Pradesh.

The Eastern Ghats, are a discontinuous range of mountains along India's eastern coast. The Eastern Ghats run from West Bengal state in the north, through Orissa and Andhra Pradesh to Tamil Nadu in the south passing some parts of Karnataka.

The Jindhagada Peak is the tallest peak of Eastern Ghats, located in the beautiful Araku Valley of Andhra Pradesh. Jindhagada Peak is also the highest mountain peak of Andhra Pradesh with an elevation of 1,690 m (5,540 ft). Araku Valley is well known for natural beauty and coffee plantation but the place is one of the least explore in India.
