A true adventurer at heart, Nalini Sengupta pursued mountaineering when the sport was dominated by a few men or army personnel. 

She was the participant of first ever women basic mountaineering course and was awarded as best participant for her exemplary contribution. 

Even today, as the principal, she encourages and promotes adventure sport in the school and strongly believes that the adventure education plays an instrumental role in pushing the society forward. To honour her contribution towards adventure and mountaineering, Giripremi planned, successfully summitted and named the peak 5268 as ‘Mt. Nalini’.
