Mra would be one amongst the eight-member team from various countries, including Belgium, Sweden, the USA and Netherlands which would attempt to scale the highest peak of North America under the supervision of three experienced guides, reported UNI.
Before proceeding on to the summit, Mra was lodged at Talkeetna, the last place in Alaska State of USA located in foothills of the Alaska mountain ranges. It is one of the most attractive adventurous tourist spots in the world and houses the famous Alaska Mountaineering Institute.
The famous Alaska Mountaineering Institute was established in 1951 in Talkeetna, located at almost 120 Km from Anchorage, a leading city of Alaska. Mra said daylight in Alaska range and nearby areas lasts for 23 hours with hardly one hours darkness, where people are workaholic and sleep barely.

He expressed hope that Mra will script a success story.
The TOF urged upon all to pray for the success of Mra and expressed gratitude to individuals who extended financial support and also the Regional Office, SBI, Itanagar for granting financial aid for the expedition.
