The remote Himalayan villages are struggling with basic amenities even in the 21st century. They live in the dark with limited resources, medical support and education. The potential of thousands of children remains untapped. NDTV, in association with Global Himalayan Expedition (GHE), will power up Shade, which is around 420 km from Leh and is the remotest village of Zanskar, Ladakh. To achieve this herculean task, the team drove for 300 km on the Leh-Manali (NH3) highway to reach Sarchu, a serene campsite at the cusp of Jammu & Kashmir and Himanchal Pradesh. The last leg of the drive ended at the bottom of Shinkula pass. The team then trekked from Shinkula to Phugtal village, the ancient monastery of the Zanskar, and then to Shade. Solar micro-grids that produce green energy were installed to light up the village.
