Life before CTC was very much confined to a smaller circle of friends and activities. However, after CTC I have definitely made more friends and knowledge and experience in many unknown activities have increased. I must also admit that CTC has given me an identity not just in Chennai but also outside of it. It a great feeling to be associated with CTC.

Volunteer, Organizer, Explorer, Cyclist

My life has always been dreamy and highly energetic. After CTC, it has opened more doors for me to explore and it has been a very good learning curve for me in terms of real time management, safety, teamwork, open-mindedness and positive spirited. There has never been a dull moment after joining CTC as the group always encourages you to step out and start trying new things. This is what you learn in B- schools. For me, CTC is a school where you really learn different subjects without books and texts and eventually excel in the same as a high-spirited individual.

Volunteer, Organizer, Mountaineer, Triathlete

Pursuing my love for trekking and mountaineering since 1970’s wherever I resided, I began an online search for a trekking club in Chennai when I came here after retirement in 2009. I didn’t take much time to locate the most active trekking club in the country, CTC, and promptly enrolled myself as a member and began participating in its varied and numerous trekking activities.CTC has transformed my personal passion for nature and outdoor activities into a very fruitful team activity in the pleasant company of friends with similar passion.
