This life is all about having different experiences. One of such great experiences is the see the nature in its purest form where you will get the know about the bonding between you and the nature. Keeping this thing in mind, Adventure Sports Club at IIT Kanpur, established in 1992, is the forum for adventure enthusiasts, trekkers, climbers and armchair mountaineers in the student community. We work to develop the spirit of adventure in the campus. Adventure Sports Club provides you opportunity to roam in the mountains and to know about yourself and your own existence.
Activities we organize are: Treks, Hikes, Mountain biking trips, Mountaineering workshops, Half-marathon. Treks are organized in each semester during the mid-semester recess as well as during the summer vacations. Mountain Biking is organized in even semester mid semester recess. As it is true for any sport, physical fitness is of prime importance. Hence, the club organizes conditioning camp of around 40 days. It also helps to increase willpower to forgo the pleasure of early morning sleep which is a big plus on the expedition as it is always advisable to start early. More emphasis is placed on completing the course of the exercises than just becoming a super athlete. The training schedule ensures that the individual attains the minimum requirement for the activity.
