HSE Students to Go Rafting in the Sayan Mountains
From August 9-24, a team of members from the Extreme Sports Club will head to the Sayan Mountains where participants will go rafting on one of the local rivers’ most challenging routes. The best competitors will be eligible to be invited to international competitions, in particular an annual water sports festival in Southeast Asia.
The Extreme Sports Club has been organizing trips for HSE students and staff for 15 years, as well as winter and summer sports competitions. Anyone is eligible to participate in the club’s activities, but taking part in the water-based trips requires training in water sports (in particular, passing through rapids) and readiness for outdoor living in forest conditions.
The trip is taking place with support from the HSE’s Office of Corporate Projects.
