The Everest Solo
"The Mount Everest Solo Expedition for Charity 2006" is organized by Petro Search Advisory Sdn Bhd, a member of TR Group of Companies. Mr Ravichandran, the mountaineer, is the Managing Director of Petro Search. This charity climb project will be funded by TR Group Companies and other potential sponsors.
Ravi will attempt to be the first Malaysian Solo Mountaineer to summit Mount Everest from the uncommon route which is from the North Side - from Tibet in March 2006. Apart of his personal missions to solo conquer the summit of Chomolungma (Mount Everest), Ravi's objective is to raise fund for the charity houses. The fund raised through this charity climb will be fully channeled to the charity organizations for its various projects. He would also like to encourage others especially corporate companies to step forward and fulfill their social responsibilities and obligations through donations.

Other charity organizations include Persatuan Kanak-kanak Cacat Akal & Selangor Wilayah Persekutuan, Persatuan Kebangsaan Pekak Malaysia, Tabung Bersamamu TV3, Pertubuhan Kebajikan Anak-anak Yatim Islam, Sau Seng Lum Dialysis & Stroke Rehabilitation Centre, Bethany Homes Perak and Rumah Kebajikan Anbu Illam & Karunai Illam.
