Happy and Adventurous New Year 2014

Dear Adventurers!

On behalf of the entire GHAC Family, I'd like to wish you all a very happy new year 2014.

The year 2013 has been marked by following few things that have made a big impact to our club.
  • GHAC was mentioned in Limca Book of records 2013 for promoting adventure in Hyderabad.

  • Our overall membership Strength has grown to over 15000+ members, 150+ Outdoors Leaders with over 3000+ events completed till date.
  • We  launched the "GHAC Travel and Leisure" wing at to offer different and unique travel experiences to our members.
  • We conducted India's largest open Triathlon including a Half Iron Level with close to 600 participants taking part from all over India.
  • We Conducted 2 Outdoor leadership training workshops and score of other outdoor skills workshop to develop good and competent Outdoor Leadership in GHAC Organisers..
  • We had over a few of our leaders complete their advance and basic mountaineering courses.
  • The Hyderabad Rockathon conducted along with Society to Save Rocks was a successful event with lot of impact and awareness created on saving rocks.
  • The Hyderabad Mudrun was a super duper hit with over 400 participants getting back to their childhood and getting dirty in the 2 kms mud, slush and obstacle course.
  • The Hyderabad Climbing Championships another huge success with many national level climbers participating in it.
With this new year 2014 the Club has few new resolutions to achieve.
  • Full time Mountaineering Wing that will lead expeditions from Hyderabad.
  • Conduct a full Iron level Triathlon on a fully professional scale with timing chips.
  • Expansion to other cities to spread the adventure Buzz. (passionate members who want to start one in your city can contact me.)
  • Add more new Adventure Activities to our kitty.
  • Do more explorations and discover new places for adventure and trekking.
This new year I would also request all our online admirers who have never attended any event with GHAC to step out and get more out of life. The point is, in 2014, make an effort to not only define what adventure means to you, but pursue a few more of your own. This can include everything from a short hike to a days trekking trip, a rock climbing session, a weekend escape to a nearby forest or a weeks long journey to explore a destination you've always wanted to experience. It'll make for a more interesting and exciting year to say the least, and you may find that it is a more fulfilling one as well.

Happy New Year everyone! Have an adventurous 2014!

Get More Out of Life
