Diyanat Ali who is the founder and chief organizer of the club developed an interest for adventure when he was a member of the NCC. Even after leaving the NCC he didn’t let go of his love for adventure and turned it into a full fledged hobby. Together with a small group of friends Diyanat would go on regular treks and participate in adventure activities whenever time permitted, till May 2008, when he came up with an idea of starting a club for people who were keen on adventure. So he started a meetup website www.ghac.in.
GHAC belongs to its members. It is totally volunteer based club. We have a group of about 40 volunteers who are called organisers. They have been chosen for their ability to lead a group and serve selflessly. The club actively looks out for experienced members who love to share and give back to the community.
The experienced and trained organisers conduct a range of adventure activities from Rock climbing, Rappelling, Bouldering, Water Rafting, Sea sailing, trekking, Jungle Treks, Scaling hillocks, camping, exploring new places and anything that spells adventure.
"GET MORE OUT OF LIFE"
The club’s philosophy "GET MORE OUT OF LIFE" prompts us to venture out in the wilderness on all the weekends away from the concrete jails. The club is open to everyone, irrespective of gender, caste, creed, religion or economic status of any individual. It’s for both the novice who wants to get started, for the amateur who wants to experiment and for the professional who want to share. Everyone with a good sense of fun and adventure is welcome.
The Club's Mission is to get people together for the purposes of:
- getting close to nature and enjoy nature in an eco friendly manner
- experiencing local, regional and far away trekking, hiking and other outdoor activities at all skill levels.
- learning tips, tricks, techniques and first aid for safe and comfortable outdoor adventuring.
- networking with the group and its members.
- Organise Social Treks for poor children and contribute towards their education & welfare
- build courage and confidence by taking part in outdoor activities
- foster team spirit, friendship and build leadership qualities in every individual
- inculcate & enhance a sense of discipline and spirit of sportsmanship and adventure
- promote overall personality development of an individual
