On the occasion of its 10th birthday in February Chennai Trekking Club is organizing the 9th year edition of the annual “Trek Polamaa” Symposium on Feb 17-18! This year we have once again put together a wonderful cast of 8 prominent guest speakers coming down to Chennai to enthrall our group with their inspirational life work in the areas of Outdoors, Sports and Conservation!

During this event we also take a moment to recognize our CTC Top Organizers/Volunteers of the year 2017 as well as showcase various videos and presentations on key areas of the group – CTC biking, Ainthinai, Red Knights, photography. We also plan a photo exhibit showing some of the most unique moments captured during last year. At the venue there will be various stalls on display with outdoors, sports gears and sustainable products.
