Trishul is a group of three Himalayan mountain peaks of western Kumaon. The three peaks resembles the shape of a trident, which is wielded as a weapon by Shiva. The highest peak among three peaks is Trisul I, whose height reaches 7,120 metres. Located in the state of Uttarakhand, it was first scaled in 1907.
A mountaineering expedition was flagged off to Mount Trishul-I by the Indian Navy. It is conducted as part of ‘Swarnim Vijay Varsh’ celebrations, which commemorates 50 years of IndiaÂ’s victory in the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. The theme for the expedition is “Trishul Yudhpoat Se Trishul Parvat Tak”.
