About 7 years ago, on Feb 22nd, 2008 a new web site was set up publishing 10 outdoor adventures and photo albums of a small group of trekking enthusiasts. Objective was to create a online platform to reach out to and connect like minded souls and organize non-stop outdoor events. The founding pillars of the group were clear - focus on passion, non-profit, volunteer driven and love for nature. Over the years the group naturally evolved and grew driven by the passion and selfless efforts of its hundreds of organizers and volunteers. Scope gradually widened beyond trekking to environmental conservation, biking, photography, caring for the less privileged, cycling, workshops, marathons, triathlons and beyond. CTC always maintained a distinct reputation of pushing the limits and bringing out the best in the people, exploring beyond the known trails, non-profit focus and volunteer-ship. These values have now connected nearly 24 thousand souls with a shared passion for outdoors, sports and nature.
To celebrate 7 wonderful years completed we are organizing 60+ outdoor events over 4 weeks between mid-Feb to mid-Mar on trekking, cycling, biking, photography, camping, green, social, heritage and wildlife. Find below our birthday event schedule. We will ensure that all interested members get an opportunity to join during each week. Invites for the respective events will be sent out individually by our organizers in the coming weeks. The center weekend of Feb 28-Mar 1 is reserved for our yearly Trek Polamaa Symposium in which we will be inviting 10 prominent guest speakers from across South India to share and inspire us with their passion on the areas of outdoors, sports and conservation. The speakers and topics will be finalized and announced by next week. Meanwhile reserve the dates!
