A women's team with seven officers from the Indian Army will attempt to scale the world's highest peak, Mount Everest, in May this year. The 22-member team was flagged off by Army Deputy Chief Lt. Gen. Ramesh Halgali on Monday.

“This is yet another example of women undertaking powerful roles in the Army as they will attempt to climb the highest peak in the world,” Army spokesperson Colonel Jagdeep Dahiya said here.

The team led by Col. Ajay Kothiyal will take off for Nepal on March 22 and will have more than 10 Army men to support the women's team in climbing the peak.
