It was in high school that CEO of Dr Lal PathLabs, Om Prakash Manchanda, discovered that he could passionately appreciate a sport like trekking. At Haryana Agricultural University (HAU), Hisar, he became a part of the university’s mountaineering club. “I met a few trekkers, who inspired me,” says Manchanda.

He vividly remembers his first trek in 1982 to Milam Glacier, Uttarakhand. It was one of the trails the club had chosen, and Manchanda did not think twice before signing up for it. “That was the first time I was exposed to the beauty of nature. I will never forget the adventures I had with the 20 other trekkers,” he says.
