Trekking Group Travels 300 Kms To Bring Electricity To Remote 1,000-Year-Old Village In Ladakh
When we travel to the remote villages in mountains, the prime concern that we all have is electricity supply. How will we charge our phones is a bigger issue than the food we will eat.
A group of people have taken up something that is extraordinary. People from different parts of the world went through an unimaginable trek to 1000-year-old remotest village in Ladakh, Shade. The purpose – electrification of the village.
The trekking group travelled for over 300 kms on edgy routes and an additional 125 kilometres of risky trekking where one miscalculation might be fatal.
The group spent two days in the village to set up 5 solar powered DC microgrids designed by ‘Global Himalayan Expedition’.
The Global Himalayan Expedition has, so far, electrified 52 villages, changing the lives of close to 20,000 people. There are very organisations that provide electricity to villages connected by roads but hardly anyone notice the once with no connectivity.
