This fascinating expedition began on February 9 and concluded on the next day. Along with promoting tourism in the state and attempting to spread a social message, the group of trekkers led by Tagit Sorang also found something extraordinary.

They discovered a stone cave used during WWII at Longpongka Hill about 2,119 metres high above sea level. It is believed that their discovery was a cave used as a transit camp. Allied Forces used it back during World War II, according to a report by Asianet News. The trekkers clicked pictures and collected information about the camp as well.
