Sankalp Taru joined hands with the Indian Army, in making the Earth more greener in Khumbathang, Kargil, Jammu and Kashmir located at 10123 Ft above the sea level.“ A mass plantation drive was carried out in the midst of the barren and dry mountains of Khumbathang Kargil, to develop a green belt exuberant with life. The endeavor of this drive is to create patches of greenery, in the vegetation deficient and high altitude cold desert.

“We believe that this joint effort to create patches of greenery, in the vegetation deficient and high altitude cold desert, will go a long way to preserve the environment.” Indian Army Spokesperson
