These expeditions will be conducted as a run up to the Bicentenary of the Regiment of Artillery, which will be celebrated on 28th September 2026.

The first expedition in the series concluded triumphantly after an exhilarating journey from 25th May to 5th Jun 2024. Covering the challenging waters of rivers Mandakini, Alaknanda, Bhagirathi and Ganges, the expedition unfolded across six phases along the Rishikesh- Devprayag- Srinagar- Rudraprayag axis, encompassing a distance of approximately 300 kilometers. The team for the expedition, led by Lieutenant Colonel B N Jha, comprised of 02 Officers, 01 JCO and 21 Other Ranks. The journey commenced from Rudraprayag and culminated at the Veer Bhadra Barrage in Rishikesh.

The primary objective of this expedition was to instil a sense of motivation and inspiration among the serving personnel, encouraging them to push beyond their limits, embrace adventure and foster camaraderie. By navigating the challenging rapids and breathtaking landscapes, participants not only showcased their resilience but also demonstrated Indian Army’s unwavering commitment to excellence and teamwork.

As the Indian Army commemorates two centuries of the Regiment of Artillery’s unwavering service and dedication, this remarkable feat stands as a testament to its ethos of courage, discipline and esprit de corps. The Indian Army looks forward to continuing its tradition of excellence, embarking on new adventures and forging stronger bonds in the years to come.
