The 3rd Indian Scientific Expedition to Antarctica led by Dr. Harsh Gupta succeeded in setting up India’s first wintering station “Dakshin Gangotri” during the Antarctic summer of 1983/84. No other country had set up and populated a permanent base in one Antarctic summer before and this record continues to hold. The mission’s endeavour to construct the base was given a 15% chance of succeeding. But against all odds, the ‘miracle’ of building Dakshin Gangotri was accomplished in record time largely due to the steadfast and dedicated commitment of the team.
